Doing Sport Differently
Doing Sport Differently – A guide to exercise and fitness for people living with disability or health conditions
‘Doing Sport Differently’ is a comprehensive guide to accessing sports and leisure opportunities in your area. It is written by and for people with lived experience of disability or health conditions, to inspire involvement in sport and fitness and improve access to grassroots sport.
“This publication could change your life". Give it a read – especially if you don’t think sport is for you." says Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE, winner of 11 Paralympic gold medals.
In the Olympic & Paralympic year the guide hopes to inspire disabled people to get active by demonstrating how to overcome barriers to participation and get involved with sports locally. ‘Doing Sport Differently’ shows the varying ways in which individuals with a disability can engage in sport, be it playing, coaching or watching.
