Disabilities is an umbrella term, covering impairments, activity limitations, and where participation in society can be restricted. Disabled people have to cope, not just with the physical difficulties caused by disability, but also with the social stigma caused by people’s attitudes.. Our directory signposts people to a wide range of help that is available.

The WDSA (UK) has been established in 2006 and it aims to both promote and support the wheelchair dance sport within the UK, as we consider it unfair for passionate individuals to be excluded from dancing.

Furthermore, we want to inspire people in considering wheelchair dancing both a leisure activity and sport, as we want to promote it at all levels around the Uk and internationally. We want to make wheelchair users believe that they can do anything, through this exciting and fun opportunity to develop themselves.
