The government has pledged £300,000 to help get more young disabled people playing sport.
The money will allow the Project Ability programme to expand. Managed by the Youth Sport Trust, the programme delivers specialist training to teachers and organises school visits from Paralympians.
As part of this, 49 schools act as centres of excellence for disability sport and last year saw 100 events staged for more than 1,650 teachers and school staff. Visit: http://bit.ly/1vrMYOG
