Sportarray

 The flagship program for inclusive sport in North Somerset!

We aim to increase the number of opportunities for disabled adults and children to access sport and physical activity across North Somerset. Through working with local clubs, coaches and volunteers, we hope to provide the support, knowledge and skills required to confidently run activities, which are inclusive to all.
