Development Programme

The Disability Sport development programme focuses on 4 priority sports: Athletics, Football, Boccia and Bowls. The 4 priority sports have been chosen, as they are also priority sports within Sports Development Section, Dundee City Disability Sport and Scottish Disability Sport. Other sports and activities such as Gymnastics are supported and developed where opportunities occur.

These development programmes are organised in partnership with Dundee City Disability Sport and Scottish Disability Sport. This partnership allows for a structured pathway from grassroots to elite sport including national and paralympic level.

The Officers have links with various clubs and various organisations in Dundee, such as Social Work, Dundee College, Education and Active school coordinators. All link to and from the Disability Sport programme to provide sport and physical activity programmes.

If you have a specific need for a sport or physical activity session for people of any age with a disability, please contact the Disability Sports Officers using the Contact Details above. They will be happy to discuss your needs.
