Charity information


Sportability provides sport and challenging pursuits for people with paralysis around the UK - free of charge.

Founded 1989

  • Mission statement

    To provide sport and challenging pursuits for people with paralysis around the UK. People with conditions such as spinal cord injury, stroke, MS and others, are able to participate in a whole range of sports - scuba diving, sailing, archery, angling, abseiling, quad-biking, gliding, canoeing, clay pigeon shooting, go-karting, land-yachting, wheelchair tennis and many more.

    It is not about creating elite sportsmen and women. It is about trying something new and different. It is about the adrenaline rush, putting the buzz back into a life corralled by the wheelchair, taking the 'dis' out of disability and focusing on ability. To inspire the thought, "If I can do this, what else can I achieve? "

  • Aims

    Sportability aims to:

    • To provide a greater range of sports (indoor and out) in the existing regions; and to offer programmes in more regions. Simply put, we want people with paralysis to have access to sport throughout the UK.
