How Active Communities is...

Inclusive

We provide opportunities and support for individuals of all ages and abilities, including those with disabilities and learning difficulties, to lead healthy lifestyles and access physical activities.

How do we create inclusive opportunities?

Our team run and supports various initiatives across the East Riding of Yorkshire, including:

Inspire Healthy Lifestyles

A weekly, one-hour multi-activity session held at our East Riding Leisure Centres. These sessions offer a wide range of fun activities that engage participants and enhance their fine motor skills. Activities and games incorporate key nutritional topics such as the eat well plate, fats and sugars, hydration, exercise, and sleep. The aim is to encourage healthier lifestyle choices among participants.

Inspire Active Communities

A pilot project in Goole and Bridlington offering a variety of sport-specific sessions for adults with learning disabilities. We work closely with community sports clubs, organisations, and local governing bodies to develop opportunities with local clubs for people with learning disabilities. Additionally, a grant scheme is available to help clubs set up more inclusive opportunities.

All Ride

An adapted cycling scheme for individuals with additional needs and mobility issues, delivered in partnership with R-evolution. Based in Bridlington, All Ride is the only adapted cycling scheme in the East Riding. Participants can hire a variety of accessible bikes and enjoy cycling along the stunning North Promenade. The scheme runs from the Easter holidays to the October half-term. For dates and further information, please visit our website, ActiveCoast.org.

Inclusive Schools

We work with the East Riding School Sports Partnerships and East Riding Inclusive Schools to deliver sport and physical activity sessions, sports days, and events. Visit our school's section for more information.
