    Making Active Lifestyles Possible For All

    09.15-16.30Bucks & Milton Keynes Disability Sport Summit Stoke Mandeville Stadium

    Did you know that only 17.2% of disabled people take part in moderate physical activity once a week however seven in ten disabled people say they want to be more active. Showing that
    more work is needed to ensure we have an active county for all.
    Leap is the non-profit county organisation with responsibility for increasing levels of physical activity and sport. Funded by Sport England we are working with our partners, the English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS), the British Paralympic Association (BPA), WheelPower and event sponsor Slater & Gordon to co-ordinate the inaugural county-wide disability sports forum on Thursday 3rd November to help address these challenges.

    Aims from the summit are to:
     make a difference to the lives of disabled people through sport and activity
     establish a disability sport and activity forum to share best practice
     attract national funding and
     optimise our position as the birthplace of the Paralympics.
    The summit welcomes you as someone working with or on behalf of disabled people, and through the summit we hope together we can enrich our knowledge about the benefits of sport and physical activity. Please be reassured that the focus of this summit is not about elite sport, but is about getting down to the grass roots level of sport for all
    We would be delighted if you are able to join us, and help to create a disability legacy at county level to equal the recognition achieved through the Paralympics established here in Buckinghamshire.
