    Beneficiaries

    Spider-y enables those people in the community who cannot take part in able bodied sports to take part in wheelchair sports and to enjoy participating in sport locally, nationally and internationally. Spider-y also exists to promote understanding of the difficulties encountered by those who are disabled.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    Recent research carried out by Research Works states that "A lack of accessible sports clubs, health related barriers and unsuitable facilities remain as major barriers for disabled people in sport". Therefore, the development of increased, inclusive activity delivered locally in accessible provisions will reduce these barriers and encourage more young people of wide ranging abilities and disability to access sport and physical activity.
