activeNewham is committed to developing a wide range of opportunities for disabled people in Newham to participate in sport and physical activity.

We work closely with a variety of partners to support the delivery of disability sessions of the highest quality for young people, adults and families.

One of our priorities is to provide more opportunities for adults to participate in sport because research shows that 72% of disabled adults do not play as much sport as they would like.

Please see What’s On for a list of Disability Sport activities currently taking place in Newham.
