Learning disability is no barrier to sport
Breaking the Barrier has grown a lot over the years and has become a real family favourite. With each year that passes we learn more about how best to help people with learning disabilities and their families to take part. We have also grown our work in partnership with expert adventure sports providers and community sports organisations. Together we deliver activities, alongside our dedicated team of community volunteers.
The sports events we offer not only increase people’s well-being and physical health. They are also a chance for young people and their families to meet up and build friendships. Breaking the Barrier offers activities that our young people and their families tell us they want to do. We make it accessible, affordable, sociable and most importantly – fun!
Whilst Coronavirus has meant we cannot currently run our usual event calendar we will not let that us stop looking to the future and keeping active now. Read latest news to find out more about how to keep on Breaking the Barrier.
