Make a difference to Scottish Borders Disability Sport



Scottish Borders Disability Sports Group

A charitable voluntary organisation, with the purpose; to encourage and promote the development of sport and physical recreation among people with physical, sensory, learning or complex disabilities.

The objective is to raise awareness and provide as much physical activity participation as possible. In doing so we provide opportunities in a sport or leisure based environment for all individuals with a disability by developing interest, increasing their self-esteem, overall health and linking them to initiatives in the local community.

What we do

The hardest part of participating and transitioning in sport or physical activity as an individual with a disability is the stigma normally attached and the perceptions people generally have of those with a disability. However, we constantly strive to break down those barriers by;

  • Developing and implementing a co-ordinated disability sport & physical activity initiatives.
  • Working with families to make transitioning into sport & physical activity a streamlined process.
  • Supporting community clubs / coaches to develop their own services around disability inclusion.
  • Offering grant assistance to encourage sport & physical activity engagement.
  • Enhancing links with public services, educational services & charity organisations.

We are devoted to ensuring that everyone with a physical, sensory, learning or complex disability has equal opportunities to participate in sport and physical activity. These activities will take place in a vibrant, lively & welcoming environment at various locations across the Scottish Borders.
