Disabled people are half as active as non-disabled people. Our charity works to make active lives possible. We do this by enabling organisations to support disabled individuals to be and stay active for life. Fundraising and sponsorship help us to continue this positive work.
Being active can help everyone to be healthier, happier and make new friends. It ultimately also improves our quality of life. As well as helping organisations to improve and increase opportunities, we support disabled people to find the right activities.
“Being active is important in all our lives whether a disabled person or not. Sport can play a huge role in the life of someone disabled, building your confidence and allowing you to meet likeminded people. But most of all it gives you a goal, and it allows you to do something that you love. Everybody should be able to get involved in the sport of their choice and EFDS is working hard to make this possible.”
