Since the London 2012 Paralympic Games and the epic performance that our elite athletes put on, disability sport has received a huge increase in funding. This funding has been granted at various levels across the board and has not been put in place to improve facilities for elite athletes but to encourage all disabled people into sport at grass roots level.
Here are a few sports with their associated web sites for you to check out!
