Disability Sport – Cambridge United Foundation

Back to Activities

Cambridge United Foundation run disability sports sessions to provide opportunities for people with additional needs to experience the benefits of being physically active. They run various impairment-specific sessions and also a number of mixed disability (Pan) sessions.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • You can get active in a fun and enjoyable way, no matter your physical ability;
  • Taking part in sports and physical activity can improve your mental wellbeing, increase your self-esteem and confidence and give you a sense of purpose;
  • It provides an opportunity to socialise with friends and meet new people.

 ‘It’s made me more confident in myself and helped me learn new skills.’
