No Limits disability groups

No Limits disability group

We work with teamBEDSandLUTON (link opens in new window) and "No Limits Inclusive Sport for all" to create more sustainable opportunities for people with disabilities to take part in regular sport, physical activity and exercise in Bedfordshire. Primarily targeting teenagers and adults with learning disabilities, our project aims to develop a network of multi sports clubs to enhance individual opportunity and improve whole family wellbeing.

All clubs are run on a ‘drop in’ basis and the activities vary from week to week, using different sports or just general fun games (for example, ‘Stuck in the Mud’). The clubs are pan disability, so all are welcome and we encourage people to come along to see if it’s for them. We aim to create a very relaxed and fun atmosphere, very much like a youth club, where adults and children can come and see / meet their friends away from schools and their local day centres.

“My daughter, Olivia Quinn is 15 years old and has Global Developmental Delay. Due to her disability she is unable to do the activities mainstream children do without an adult with her. Only a few reasons my daughter needs and enjoys this club:

  • it gives her opportunity to socialise with other children who have differing needs – with a child with learning difficulties it is very difficult to find social groups that they can attend and be like any other child
  • it gives her the opportunity to learn new skills including the sporting activity itself as well as communicating with others
  • it gives her opportunity to mix with pupils from other schools rather than just her school friends, which is invaluable
  • it has increased her confidence and self-belief”
