We’re delighted we can help 5,000 people with a complex disability lead a more active life, thanks to Sport England.
Sense wants every person with a complex disability to lead a more active life. Franklyn, for example, does inclusive climbing sessions at The Castle Climbing Centre, thanks to funding from Sport England:
Sport England’s award of £2.2million of government and National Lottery funding until 2027 gives us four focus areas:
- Create and support healthier and active lifestyles for people with complex disabilities.
- Focus on more relaxed ways to be active such as Sensory Walks.
