Sport and activity for all
Derbyshire Sport works with a whole host of partners to ensure an inclusive approach is taken to physical activity and sport across the county.
We are committed to ensuring that inclusive sport is at the heart of everything we do in order to provide opportunities for everyone to participate.
There are dedicated programmes that run within Derbyshire that engage with groups of people who require a lower intensity level of activity in order to get become active.
The Walking for Health programme for example, offers health walks that help people of all abilities lead an active lifestyle.

Charter for Change
Derbyshire Sport support the 'Charter for Change', created by the EFDS which outlines three asks:
1. Everyone involved in providing sport or physical activity will support disabled people to participate.
2. Disabled people will have the same opportunity as non-disabled people to be active throughout their lives.
3. All communications about sport and physical activity will promote positive public attitudes towards disabled people's participation.
