Rutland Disabled Youth Forum is for ages 14-25 and we aim to give young people with disabilities a voice about the services, facilities and accessibility in and around Rutland.

Dan from Get Yourself Active came along to our forum meeting on Thursday 26th April . We talked about what sports/activities we currently do either as part of a team or individually; basketball, swimming, gym and dance, then we spoke about what kind of sports we would like to do; hockey, dodgeball, handball. It was expressed that we would feel more confident at trying something new if we met the coach beforehand and there were people we know! One suggestion everyone came up with was to run a 10-week multi sport sessions just for young people/adults with disabilities where we can try a different sport each week. This is being looked into so watch this space!
