DASL’s Into Sport project

The IntoSport project was the way that dasl built up experience of leading sport and physical activity work with Disabled people in the borough. We have built on this through our current Get Out Get Active programme.



The original IntoSport project was led by Inclusion London working with London Sport and leading Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisations (DDPOs) in five London boroughs including dasl.

Into Sport, funded by Sport England, started in June 2014 and continued until March 2018.

The five London Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisations that were involved were:
Inclusion Barnet
Disability Advice Service Lambeth
Greenwich Association of Disabled People (GAD)
Southwark Disablement Association (SDA)
Richmond AID

Each developed different approaches to getting more Disabled people to be active. DASL’s programme included:

- One to one information, advice and support

- A regular Sport and Physical Activity Access and Advocacy Group

- An activities programme to give Disabled people the confidence to start or return to being more active.

You can find out more about the whole project and download some of the great resources on inclusive sport and physical activity which it produced by visiting the Inclusion London website.
