Sport Achievement Award

The award

Participation in sport has the potential to transform a person’s health, wellbeing and outlook on life. However, people with learning disabilities are often excluded from mainstream sporting activities. The Sport Achievement Award recognises the success of an individual or team of people with learning disabilities who have made sport a meaningful part of their life, and whose story challenges others to consider sport and the concept of achievement in new ways.
