Supporting people with learning disabilities
The Sports for All project in Sussex has been funded by Sport England between 2013 and 2017 in Brighton & Hove and West Sussex, and more recently across East Sussex. The project has been successful in increasing the number of adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs taking part in, and participating regularly in sport and physical activity.
We work closely with Special Olympics Brighton & Hove and support people to take part in competitions. Read more about Special Olympics: www.specialolympicsgb.org.uk.
