What do we mean by disability?

In Derbyshire approximately 20% of the population have a disability or limiting illness. The main impairment groups are:

  • Sensory impairments - visual and hearing
  • Speech, language or communication impairment
  • Physical impairment
  • Mental Health conditions
  • Learning disabilities

Read more about the range of impairments in Sport England's 'Mapping Disability: The Facts' report. It includes information on disability by categories such as gender and age.

Our commitment to fairness and equality

Active Derbyshire support the 'Charter for Change', created by the EFDS which outlines three asks:

1. Everyone involved in providing sport or physical activity will support disabled people to participate.

2. Disabled people will have the same opportunity as non-disabled people to be active throughout their lives.

3. All communications about sport and physical activity will promote positive public attitudes towards disabled people's participation.
