Inclusive Sport

The Inclusive Sports programme aims to increase the level of participation and the sporting opportunities for the disabled residents of Barking and Dagenham.

There are organisations which can help you get involved in sport, if you wish to. Motivate East is an inclusive sports participation project for disabled people living in the host boroughs inspired by the Paralympic Games. Interactive aims to make sport more accessible to disabled people.

In January 2013 the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham launched the Inclusive for Life Programme.

If you have participated in the inclusive activities within the last year then we are keen to find out why you take part, how often and how satisfied you are with the activities and facilities provided and how we can improve to make your experience even better. We would be grateful if you could complete the short survey below and return to Danielle Smith:
