inclusive sport & physical Activity

Newport Live is an inclusive organisation, and we provide a number of programmes and initiatives to help tackle inequality.

Disability Sport

The Disability Sport Wales National Community Development Programme is a national scheme that aims to develop and sustain, quality community-based sporting and recreational opportunities for disabled people.

In Newport this is a joint initiative between Sport Wales, Disability Sport Wales, Newport City Council and Newport Live. In May 2018 we were successful in attaining the Disability Sport Wales insport silver award. The award recognises Newport Live and Newport City Councils ongoing commitment to applying the philosophy and culture of inclusion through policy, working practice, and structuring delivery inclusively.  We are currently pursuing insport gold award.

A Disability Sport Wales development officer is based within the Community Sport & Wellbeing Team at Newport Live with the role of developing sporting and recreational opportunities for disabled people in Newport.
