Play Unified is a global movement aimed at ending the injustice, intolerance and inactivity of young people with intellectual disabilities, by building a unified generation through sport. A Special Olympics Programme, delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, it is aimed at young people in secondary and special schools. It encourages players with a learning disability to play on the same team as those without. It builds friendships, helps social interaction and breaks down the stigma that some people may have around people with disability. It is funded by Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and jointly administered by DCMS and Sport England.
We want to give everyone the opportunity to discover and enjoy basketball. We’re working hard to make sure the opportunities for disabled people are increasing across the country and throughout the sport.
