Following a steep rise in cases across the region, the whole of the North East has been named as an area that will receive additional support. You can read the latest statement from LA7 leaders. There are no additional restrictions on the area or residents but with cases of Covid higher than ever before everyone is asked to continue to act carefully and responsibly. Further information will be provided as it becomes available. See Covid-19 advice and information for advice on how to stay safe. Thank you for playing your part in helping to keep the North East open and protect others.

Disability sport and physical activity

According to Sport England, only 14.2% of disabled people in County Durham participate in sport on a regular basis.

It is a high priority for us to make sure that disabled adults and young people are included in sport and leisure activities in County Durham. We aim to offer the same opportunities and choices as those for non-disabled people throughout our sport and leisure sites and activities.

Our facilities

All of our leisure and sports centres are accessible to everybody and have disabled changing facilities. We offer hoists or beach entry and adaptable wheelchairs for our swimming pools, and we have some specialist facilities including our state of the art multi-sensory room at Spennymoor Leisure Centre. For information on your nearest sports club that offers disability or inclusive provision you can visit Tyne Wear Sport Club Activity Finder.


We encourage and support people of all abilities to participate in our inclusive activities and sports clubs and we also offer some specific sessions for people with disabilities and additional needs including  sessions at Spennymoor, Freeman's Quay and Chester-le-Street Leisure Centres.
