About us

PACE is a voluntary organisation promoting the inclusion of young disabled people in sports and leisure activities. We were established in June 2004 following consultations with young disabled people and their families. These consultations highlighted the need for more inclusive sports and social opportunities for disabled people.

PACE aims to use a wide range of fully inclusive and adapted multi-sport and leisure activities as a means of challenging social exclusion and isolation, experienced by many disabled people when they leave school. We also aim to develop skills such as confidence, communication, co-ordination, strength, self-expectation, social-skills, life-skills and experiences to empower our members and give them greater control over their lives.
