Wiltshire Boccia Club
Wiltshire Boccia Club is an exciting opportunity for people with disabilities and their friends/siblings to come along and take part in a Paralympic sport. Boccia is a non-contact sport that relies upon the skill of the player rather than size, speed, and strength. A ball can be propelled by rolling, throwing, or kicking. A ramp can be used if required. Players will experience competitive opportunities in a friendly atmosphere with the emphasis on taking part and enjoyment.
Wiltshire Wheels for All is an inclusive cycling programme providing opportunities for adults and young people with a disability or mobility issues to take part. A range of adapted cycles are on offer including tandems, tricycles and hand cycles with all sessions delivered by qualified leaders. Individuals are welcome to bring their own adapted bike if they wish to.
Various swim classes and opportunities are available to children and adults across the county.
Get Out, Get Active (GOGA)
GOGA is a programme developed by the national inclusive charity 'Activity Alliance' and is funded by Spirit of 2012.
The aim is to target the least active members of our community, bringing disabled (inc. those with long term health conditions) and non-disabled people together to enjoy the physical, social, and mental benefits associated with physical activity. In Wiltshire, we have also targeted those that were at risk of rural and social isolation during the pandemic. There are opportunities for individuals to develop their skills and volunteer within the programme.
