There are plenty of services and projects that are available for people who have a disability.
Disability sport services
There are a number of services that can help people with disabilities keep active, participate in activities and keep safe when they go out.
Projects such as Creating Connections and the Inclusive Sports project help people with disabilities to get involved and access sports and leisure across Kirklees.
Creating Connections project
The Creating Connections Project aims to establish a sport and physical activity care pathway for people with a disability across West Yorkshire. Connections will be made between sport, the health sector and disabled peoples organisations (DPO's) to increase the number of people with a disability regularly playing sport.

Cycling is a fantastic way to have fun, gain more independence, improve confidence and enjoy a sense of freedom. Using a range of cycles and adaptations opens up cycling opportunities that are both physically and mentally stimulating for children and adults with disabilities and differing needs.
