Disability Pride 2020

Active Norfolk is delighted to support Disability Pride 2020 in partnership with Norfolk Disability Pride and Equal Lives, with a week of free, inclusive online activities from 14th to 20th September.

Last week we hosted a number of live activity sessions via Zoom from a number of local providers, including EPIC, Special Olympics Norfolk, Community Sports Foundation, and Easy Active 8.

We also hosted two pre-recorded activity videos each day, which you can access now on demand via our Disability Pride 2020 Playlist on Youtube.

Whilst you're here, take a look at our webinar explaining how and why to get active, and a webinar for professionals working with people with disabilities to support them to get active.

Disability Pride is still live, with more great activities and sessions lined up. Find out what's on at www.norfolkdisabilitypride.org.uk/
