Service description:
Currently 93% of disabled people in England are not taking part in sport according to the latest Sport England
Active People Survey
Sports participation among disabled adults has decreased by 42,800, from 429,500 to 386,700. We aim to change this.

The English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) is a charity responsible for the promotion and development of sporting opportunities for all disabled people in England.
Whether it be elite level or grass roots sport, we work closely with a number of key partners to ensure that the sports sector is informed about and responsible for the diverse opportunities for disabled people.

We believe it is vital disabled people do not feel segregated in sport and are able to access the same opportunities as the rest of society.

English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) is the national body responsible for developing sport for disabled people in England. We work closely with the National Disability Sports Organisations (NDSOs) recognised by Sport England to develop sporting opportunities for the 11 million disabled people in England.
