Useful Disability Contacts
Last updated December 2021
We’ve pulled together a list of useful disability contacts, so you know who to get in touch with. The National Governing Bodies (NGBs) are listed as well as the National Disability Sports Organisations (NDSO’s). There’s also a link to the Activity Alliance as they have excellent advice on accessibility in sport.
If you’re looking for a contact not listed below, or need any further help, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Active Norfolk directly at the bottom of the page so we can assist.
National Governing Bodies (NGBs)
NGBs are typically independent organisations that govern their sports. They will be able to provide information about the sport that they govern, and most will also have details of clubs or places you can take part.Find out more
NGBs can be contacted with requests for accessibility in sport, or general queries relating to your club or team. They can also advise on the latest guidance surrounding your sport and Coronavirus.
