Our vision

Disabled people are active for life

Our purpose

Making active lives possible by enabling organisations to support individual disabled people to be active and stay active for life.

Outcomes

We see two broad (wider than sport) outcomes which will result from increased participation in sport and physical activity by disabled people:

  1. Enhanced health and wellbeing for all disabled people.
  2.  A more equal society in which disabled people can achieve more through increased opportunities and choice.

As a Federation founded in 1998, EFDS benefits from the wealth of its Members’ expertise.

We work closely with many organisations. This includes Sport England, the National Disability Sport Organisations (NDSOs) for specific impairment groups and National Governing Bodies (NGBs) of sport. We also work with regional, coaching and education networks, including the County Sports Partnerships, clubs and schools. You can find out more about our Members and other partners here.
