Sport England is currently in discussions with National Disability Sports Organisations, including UK Deaf Sport, about the role they can play to support the delivery of Government’s strategy for sport and physical activity, Sporting Future, which is focused on tackling inactivity in priority groups, such as disabled people. Between 2014 and 2017 Sport England is investing £365,791 in UK Deaf Sport to provide disability and impairment specific expertise to create more opportunities for deaf people to play sport regularly. This was an increase of £83,817 (30%) from its 2011-2014 investment.
