About Herts Disability Sports Foundation

Herts Disability Sports Foundation (HDSF) is a relatively small charity (CIO, Registered Charity Number 1156034) working to support adults and children in Hertfordshire with physical and/or learning disabilities to participate in recreational sporting activities. Our mission is to “Provide and support opportunities in sports and physical activity that can be accessed by everyone, whether it be through participation, volunteering coaching or education in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.”  Our aim is to provide high quality experiences delivered by our highly skilled and experienced staff and volunteers - always treating each person as an individual and never presuming to judge others' behaviours or needs.  We work with a number of day services, groups and many individuals to provide a variety of sessions that ensure our community has equal access to the benefits of physical activities.

The Foundation also supports inclusive training and coach development opportunities for participants, coaches and day service staff; providing a holistic approach to inclusive sports development.

In addition to this, we provide open sessions which are available to anybody with a disability and their siblings/friends. These sessions include archery, easy rider adapted cycling, doughnutting, fishing and bell boating. To find out more about these sessions and to book a place, please click here.

Alongside this, the Foundation is able to cater for organisations who would like to take part in corporate activities with a paralympic twist. This includes activities such as paralympic games and wheelchair basketball competitions. Please contact us to find out more.

We are now able to provide activities from a variety of facilities across Hertfordshire. Activities include archery, basketball, boccia, dance, easy rider adapted cycling, fitness and mobility, team building activities and wheelchair basketball. If you are interested in any of these activities please contact us for details.
