Everybody Active

Regular physical activity has both physical and mental health benefits for people of all ages. For people with a disability finding the time, space and support they need to be active can be a challenge. Physical activity can help to increase confidence and concentration, strengthen muscles and improve balance and co-ordination. Being active can also provide great opportunities to have fun, meet new people, enjoy time with family, friends and carers, build relationships and strengthen connections in the community.

The services and activities detailed below will help people with a disability or additional support needs to be active and improve their health, wellbeing, and quality of life
