Dragons On the Move
Dragons On the Move is an accessible programme designed to help everyone enjoy the benefits of being active in Norfolk. We want to help people of all ages and abilities to have fun, and try new skills and activities!
What is Dragons On The Move?
Dragons On The Move was formed in partnership with the Disability Real Action Group of Norfolk (DRAGONs). It was originally called ‘On the Move’ but has since been rebranded to reflect the crucial work the Dragons have put into it.
The Dragons are a group of young people with disabilities who visit clubs and leisure centres across the county. They assess these to ensure they are accessible and easy to use for people with disabilities or additional mobility requirements.
Who are the Dragons?
The Disability Real Action Group of Norfolk (DRAGONs) are a group of young people with disabilities.
We have partnered up with these exceptional young people to review facilities and greenspaces across Norfolk. This project is known as ‘Dragons On The Move’.
On these visits, they assess the places for accessibility, so that people looking to visit know what to expect.
If you’d like to find out more about the Dragons or are interested in getting involved, email [email protected]
How do the Dragons On The Move accessibility reviews work?
Dragons On the Move reviews public places such as leisure centres, community centres and greenspaces for accessibility.
On these visits, they look for facilities such as disabled parking, changing rooms and toilets.
The Dragons also see how well-trained the staff are to support people with disabilities, and how accessible the building is in general.
On the Move Outdoors
The DRAGONs have been busy travelling Norfolk to assess local walking routes, greenspaces and trails to see how easy to use they are. They take a look at what facilities are available, and most importantly whether there’s a place to get a slice of cake!
In our On the Move Outdoors section you can take a look at these reviews, and find an accessible walk near you.
You can also get in touch and ask us to review an outdoor area for you. We’d love to hear from you!
Get reviewed by Dragons On The Move
Our Dragons are always happy to review new facilities. Once reviewed, you’ll be ‘On The Move’ certified on our list of approved providers, and on our Every Move activity finder. This will let people know that your facilities are suitable and accessible.
