The ActiveAbility Programme has now come to an end of its funding. We would like to thank our partners in the programme; Sport England for helping to fund the programme. Many existing sessions are now run through partner agencies e.g. Places For People or by community clubs/ volunteers. We have had over 150,311 attendances on our sessions over four years and would like to thank all our volunteers and participants for their involvement with the project.
