Health Conditions & Disabilities

Active Oxfordshire is committed to ensuring there are effective physical activity pathways for people with disabilities and long term health conditions.

We work with a range of stakeholders to improve these services, including the Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Local Authorities, Community activation teams and sister organisations. Our aim is to develop and promote opportunities, from increasing inclusive activities to behaviour change delivery models.
