Funded by the Scottish Government, Scottish Disability Sport (SDS) is the Scottish governing and co‑co-ordinating body of all sports for people of all ages and abilities with a physical, sensory or learning disability. SDS has the lead in the development of sport and physical recreation for disabled people in Scotland and contributing to UK and international initiatives. SDS has published a national strategy which directs the work of the Association through London 2012 and beyond. SDS lists its major partners as sportscotland, Scotland's Governing Bodies of Sport and Local Authorities, plus third sector organisations concerned with disability.
SDS is keen to be part of a co‑ordinated programme in Scotland looking at the recuperation of injured Service personnel and veterans. With their Regional Manager structure almost complete, they are in a strong position to offer support and advice locally. By focusing on the 'ability' rather than the 'disability' of injured Service personnel and veterans, SDS will encourage sports professionals to adopt an inclusive approach to physical activity, including sport, as part of its national strategy.
