Activities and Leisure for the Disabled

  1. The British Disabled Angling Association (BDAA) was founded in 1996 to develop opportunities for disabled people of all ages and abilities to access the activity of fishing in the UK.

    The charity is inclusive, by empowering disabled people as part of its management structure we offer the very best in advice and support with a broad knowledge of impairments.

  5. Disabled access reviews from disabled people and their friends and families.

    As well as tourism and entertainment venues such as hotels, restaurants, bars, theatres & visitor attractions, Euan’s Guide features disabled access reviews of any place that is visited as part of everyday life such as post offices, railway stations, supermarkets and many others.
  6. Gardening can be fun again! Don't let age, accident or disability stop you from enjoying your garden. Start planning your way out of trouble, frustration and aching muscles. Bring the soil to a height that suits you, get the right tools, eliminate weeds by mulches or permeable fabric and congratulate yourself.
  7. Nordoff Robbins is the largest independent music therapy charity in the UK, dedicated to changing the lives of vulnerable and isolated people.

    We support thousands of people through our own centres and by working in over 150 partnerships with a wide range of organisations including care homes, schools and hospitals.

    Music therapy is a specialist use of music that aims to facilitate physical and emotional wellbeing, and to promote the development and retention of key communication skills. A wide range of instruments can be used in music therapy, including the voice, and the music created is often improvised. Music therapists support people to develop their own ways of being musical in order to explore their potential and connect with the world around them.
  8. Sportability, a registered charity, provides sport and challenging pursuits for people with paralysis around the UK. People with conditions such as spinal cord injury, stroke, MS and others, are able to participate in a whole range of sports - scuba diving, sailing, archery, angling, abseiling, quad-biking, gliding, canoeing, clay pigeon shooting, go-karting, land-yachting, wheelchair tennis and many more.

    It is not about creating elite sportsmen and women. It is about trying something new and different. It is about the adrenaline rush, putting the buzz back into a life corralled by the wheelchair, taking the 'dis' out of disability and focusing on ability. To inspire the thought, "If I can do this, what else can I achieve?"

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a non-profit website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The community atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.
