Inclusive Cycles Scheme

Inclusive Cycles Scheme

Disability Sport NI recently launched a project which aims to improve the health and wellbeing of people with disabilities in Northern Ireland, through participation in sport and active recreation – and the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon area will benefit greatly.

The ‘District Council Disability Sports Hub Project’ gave all council areas disability sports equipment packs including: twelve sports wheelchairs, one rugby wheelchair, three track chairs, five hand cycles, four tandem bikes, three trikes, three boccia sets and one sensory activity pack.

Council has now organised a session for anyone with a disability to come along and try out some of this equipment and learn how they can use it on a regular basis to help increase their activity levels.

This project was delivered by Disability Sport NI and funded by Department for Communities via Sport Northern Ireland
