'Into Sport' is an exciting 3 year project which started in July 2014 to encourage more disabled people aged 14 and upwards to participate in sport and physical activity.

The project is led by Inclusion London working with Interactive and leading Deaf and Disabled People's Organisations (DDPOs) in five London boroughs including DASL.

Watch this clip to find out more about the whole ‘Into Sport’ Project

The five London Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisations that are involved in delivering the different projects are:

Barnet Centre for Independent Living
Disability Advice Service Lambeth
Greenwich Association of Disabled People (GAD)
Southwark Disablement Association (SDA)
Richmond AID

Note: Since the film above was made, Barnet Centre for Independent Living has replaced Disability Action in Islington on the project.

The overall aim is “to take a creative approach to tackling barriers Disabled people face in accessing sport and viewing it as a relevant lifestyle choice. DDPOs are using engagement and partnership approaches which have proved very effective in in other areas of their work, to support Disabled people to become sustainably active. Interactive and Inclusion London will help them embed sport and physical activity into their core functions and produce evidence and materials to spread learning to other DDPOs and partners, resulting in sustained increase in active Disabled Londoners.

Each DDPO is delivering a project which will pilot different ways of achieving this aim.
