Following a youth forum in early 2020 to discuss sport and physical activity in Bedford it was clear that there was a need to support young people with disabilities to become more physically active in a safe and comfortable environment.

The National Initiative for Creative Education (NICE) is also Hull Migrant Centre and some of their work focuses on supporting young refugees and asylum seekers – mainly around their education. This project supported them to have the opportunity to be physically active but also to meet others and also get to know the City as the activities took place across different facilities. Swimming was a big focus of the project with some of the young people not being able to swim, or never having the opportunity to sim prior to this project.

Active Sussex worked with local partners to distribute Tackling Inequalities Fund to groups who would be most effective in supporting people from each priority group to be active.
