What we do

Everybody should have the opportunity to participate in sport, whatever your ability. At West Yorkshire Sport we are dedicated to improving the access to sport and physical activity for all disabled people within West Yorkshire.

We work closely with the Disability Sports Yorkshire and the Equality Standard to offer sport to all.

We can help with news and events, coaching and volunteering information, and links to local clubs and participation opportunities.
