The District Council Disability Sports Hub is a Northern Ireland wide project, providing local councils with access to inclusive sports equipment and creating sustainable opportunities for disabled people to access sport and active recreation within their council area.

The District Council Disability Sports Hub project began as an initial capital investment of £1,000,000 from Department for Communities via Sport NI to provide all council areas in Northern Ireland with a range of inclusive and adaptive disability sports equipment. The project has been strongly supported by district councils and has been further boosted by securing funding from Progressive Building Society in a 3 year partnership.

The new programme will develop over 11,000 participation opportunities for people with disabilities, transforming access to disability sports in Northern Ireland. The Disability Sports Hub Project will continue to develop new clubs and programmes to include programmes such as wheelie active, wheelchair basketball, boccia, sensory and inclusive cycling. This project will raise the visibility of disability sports opportunities and encourage more disabled people to be active and be the best.
