Glasgow Disability Sport
Leading the development of sport for people with physical, sensory or learning disabilities, in partnership with key local agencies and local authorities, within Glasgow and the surrounding areas.
GDS continues to follow the advice given by Scottish Disability Sport on the return to sport process. The position remains that the vast majority of all physical face-to-face national events including engagement days, para-sport festivals and National Championships will recommence from 01 September 2021. All education and training sessions will continue to take place online until the end of August. As a multi-sport organisation, advice from sportscotland, the sport-specific governing bodies, Active Scotland and the Scottish Government has been considered.
