Together We Will
Welcome to Together We Will, a new campaign to support you to be active and stay active with your friends and family.
UKDS has come together with the National Disability Sports Organisations and English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS), supported by Sport England to encourage disabled people to be more active.
Together We Will aims to support you to become healthier, stronger and have fun being active.
UKDS aims to encourage Deaf people to participate, to enjoy and to excel at sport. We believe that sport can have a profound influence on the lives of deaf people. We know that sports participation is lowest among people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Sport can have a positive impact on the well being of deaf people but many are currently missing out on its benefits.
Over the next three months we’ll be sharing stories from disabled people, about how and where they enjoy being active with friends and family. We’ll also help you to find useful information that can support you to be more active.
Remember, as well as helping us be happy and healthy, being active is a great social activity. It can help you meet people, make friends and give your sense of well-being a big boost.

DEAFinitely Inclusive works to make mainstream activity groups and organisations accessible for deaf people around the country. Our accreditation process means organisations can prove they are ‘deaf-friendly’ and ensure deaf people are confident to engage with them.
