Whatever your age, experience or ability there are many opportunities in Derby for you to get involved in disability sport. The subject of disability sport is becoming a hot topic on many people’s lips with the continuing development of the Derby Disability Sport Focus Group and opportunities to get involved in disability sport being created every week.

So how does this affect you? Well, you can find out more about getting involved in shaping the future of Derby Disability Sport Focus Group as they look to find new disabled and non-disabled members to sit on its panel. You can also view listings of activities already running, so why not take a look at what is on offer?
