A very resourceful accessibility guide is available on the Disability Holiday Information website, which details all the accessible sport and physical activity around Shropshire Telford & Wrekin. This guide has been created by Frank Napper, a wheelchair user himself, with help from his wife and other members of the Disability Holiday Information group. This website has been designed to give travellers with all disabilities and mobility issues suitable information on accessible holiday accommodation and provide the perfect opportunity for disabled people to plan a holiday, a short break or just a day out.

The ‘All In’ Short Breaks programme is about providing after-school, weekend and school holiday events and activities for children and young people living in Shropshire with a disability or additional need – children who have, or would experience, difficulty attending groups, clubs or facilities without support. These are funded sessions that allow children with disabilities to get fit, by engaging in different sports and physical activity, whilst giving parents a short break. They are free of charge sessions and currently run at Shrewsbury sports village, Quarry Swimming and Fitness Centre; and Oswestry swimming centre.

The National Governing Body for disabled people in sport and physical activity throughout England is the Activity Alliance. Dedicated to the provision of disabled sport at all levels of participation, this charity has great influences within disability sport and physical activity in England. The charity engages with a range of disability organisations in order to fully support the sport sector and provide all disabled people with many opportunities to get involved in sport.
