Luton’s sports organisations have received over £300k from Sport England to give more disabled people an opportunity in sport.

Almost £360k has been secured by the Disability Resource centre (DRC) in conjunction with the County Sports Partnership and Team Beds & Luton to create more sustainable opportunities for disabled people to take part in sport.

Bedfordshire is one of the 44 projects across England that will receive funding from the £8 million injected into disability sport.

Mick Dillon, chief executive of the DRC, said: “The funding would provide the much needed catalyst for change that will create more genuine opportunities for people with a disability to access quality sports in this county.”

The project aims to develop a network of multi sport and sport specific clubs across the county over the next 3 years.

Graeme Simpson, Team Beds & Luton, business manager, said: “We are delighted that this funding has been secured for the delivery and development of disability sport across Bedfordshire including Luton.”

Working with partners, the project aims to deliver a consistent message that there are no limits to an individuals capacity to be involved, no limits to an individuals aspiration to succeed and no limits to regular sports participation.
