Disability sports projects
On Your Marks...
On Your Marks is an exciting new three-year funded sports project, targeting adults with disabilities and additional needs who are currently inactive or lead sedentry lifestyles.
Active Ealing will run sport and physical activity days across the borough, in which individuals can take part in 3-4 hours of sport and physical activity a day as part of a healthy lifestyle. The activities will include swimming lessons, table tennis, indoor bowls and multi-sports.
There will be two activity days per week with sessions running over a 10-week period. The two weekday programmes will be allocated to adults attending day care services in the borough. A weekend swimming session will be open to participants from across the borough.
The current phase of sessions will run from September - November 2013
The sessions will take place at:
- Gurnell Leisure Centre
- Southall Sports Centre
- Northolt Leisure Centre

The Extreme Ability project was one of the Ealing CSPAN (Community Sport and Physical Activity Network) projects, which ran from 2008-2011. It was funded via Sport England’s Community Investment Fund (CiF)
The project created a number of brand new sports participation opportunities across a range of sports including 'extreme sports' for young people and adults, people with disabilities and additional needs aged 14+.
Since the project ended in December 2011, a number of local sports clubs and facilities have continued to run sports sessions and invest in disability sport. Details of these sessions can be found in the Extreme Ability 2012 brochure.

Willow Tree School Sport Partnership and Springhallow SEN school is taking a lead role across West London in the Project Ability programme. This is a national programme (sponsored by Sainsbury's) which will pioneer new and innovative ways to build capacity and develop further sporting opportunities for young people with disabilities.
As a Project Ability host site the school has been provided with funding and will support schools by:
developing and delivering bespoke Youth Sport Trust training and providing local advice and guidance to school games organisers in the borough
driving the establishment and implementation of more local competitive opportunities for all young people
sustain young people's participation beyond their involvement in competition through the development of school club activities
