On Wednesday 1st May we attended the launch of a progressive partnership between Disability Sport NI and Progressive Building Society to further develop the Disability Sports Hub.
At this event, Disability Sport NI and Progressive Building Society announced a new three-year partnership to support the development of disability sport in Northern Ireland. It was a fantastic opportunity to check out the accessible sports that are available in Northern Ireland.
The new partnership means that every council area in Northern Ireland, eleven in total, will have a part-time activity leader based in them, which will allow dedicated work to be carried out towards growing disability sport.
The creation and development of these Disability Sports Hubs will not only create more opportunities for people to get involved, but they will also improve the health and wellbeing of people with disabilities, both physically and mentally.
