In 2015 an extensive public consultation was carried out across Northern Ireland to develop a Strategic Action Plan and investment framework for the disability sport sector. More than 250 individuals and organisations engaged with the process and a Strategic Project Board, convened and serviced by Sport Northern Ireland and independently chaired by Disability Action, transformed the views and opinions expressed into the Active Living: No Limits Action Plan 2016-2021.

The Active Living: No Limits 2021 vision is:
“That everyone with a disability has an equal opportunity to access sport and active recreation leading to a healthier and more active lifestyle”.

Over the next five years it is hoped that, through delivery of the Action Plan, people with a disability will:

  • Be supported by a strong, well-coordinated disability sport sector
  • Have positive experiences as a result of changed public attitudes and a greater understanding of disability
  • Lead active lifestyles and have improved health and wellbeing through involvement in sport and active recreation
  • Have equality of choice and consistency of accessible activities and sporting facilities
  • Face ‘No Limits’ in sport and active recreation.
