Discover sport with the EFDS and NDSOs
After a summer packed full of sport, the English Federation of Disability Sport and the National Disability Sport Organisations are working together to ensure all disabled people can be active for life.
National Disability Sport Organisations (NDSOs) provide opportunities for people with specific impairments to take part in, as well as offer advice and support. For many disabled people, the NDSOs are the starting point to get involved in sport and if they choose to develop their talent.
NDSOs also support National Governing Bodies of sport to deliver more inclusive programmes. Each NDSO has an appointed advisor to look after the Inclusive Sport programme, who are supported by EFDS.
There are so many sports on offer, at various locations and levels. You do not have to be a talented athlete to enjoy sport. With so many participation opportunities on offer, everyone can find a sport or activity of their choice. The NDSOs and EFDS support any disabled person, who wants to be active.
We have produced a quick information guide to the NDSOs and the impairment group they support.
For weekly activities, add them on our partner DotComUnity’s website
