New EFDS website goes live

The English Federation of Disability Sport is proud to reveal our brand new website. The hub of useful information has been re-designed to focus on two principal elements- to support sport to be more inclusive and encourage disabled people to take part.

In a year full of sporting inspiration, the English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) believed it was the right time to re-think its digital presence and give the old site a much-awaited makeover. The charity felt a need to bring together its brand family on one site and ensure its wide mixture of audiences had access to all the relevant information. Working with new designers and hosts Tictoc- EFDS has worked immensely hard on producing a site which meets everyone’s needs and are overwhelmed with the result.

With an improved visual concept, cross-promotional news and social media interaction for users, EFDS hopes visitors continue to use the site as the first information point to learn about engaging disabled people in sport. Uniting the brand family with EFDS programmes Inclusive Fitness and Disability Sport Events, everyone can access the site at www.efds.co.uk. It boasts easy to use tools like mapping for Inclusive Fitness gyms, events and participation opportunities and an expansive store of research and insight. In addition, EFDS have delivered a site, which optimises its charity status, encouraging support to continue the positive work.

“The new website represents everything EFDS stands for and is working hard to achieve in sport and disabled people- a strong, dynamic organisation which embraces innovation and customer-led insight. We hope all our users enjoy the new site, find inclusive opportunities, as well as promote their own opportunities and resources so more disabled people can take part in sport and physical activity”.
