Activity Alliance is the new name for the English Federation of Disability Sport. We are the same team working towards the same goals, but with a new image.
September 2018 marks 20 years since we became a national charity and we are proud of our success so far. We work with so many amazing people and are at the centre of influential world-renowned programmes for disabled people. We believe the time is right for us to embrace change, engage new audiences and ensure our brand promise matches our ambition.

Birmingham Children's Trust
Birmingham Children's Trust exists to make a positive difference for children, young people and families in the city.
We used to be called Children's Services and be run by Birmingham City Council. For a long time our services were inadequate, and we needed to do much more to support disadvantaged children and young people in the city and make sure they were safe.
We started making some important improvements – listening to and learning from others, improving our social work practice and supporting our staff to do their jobs well.
We became a Children's Trust in April 2018 to help us accelerate these changes.
Our Trust is owned by, but independent from, Birmingham City Council.

Irwin Mitchell's ‘Don't Quit, Do It’ campaign
National law firm Irwin Mitchell is lending its support and is headline partner of the Birmingham Inclusive Sports Fest (BISF). Irwin Mitchell's support for the festival is part of the firm's award-winning 'Don't Quit, Do It' campaign to promote disability sport and highlight the benefits physical activity can have for people with life-changing injuries.
Irwin Mitchell's 'Don't Quit, Do It' campaign aims to get more people playing, watching and supporting disability sport than ever before. To make this possible your help is needed, we need you to pledge to Be Part Of It.
For every pledge received, Irwin Mitchell will donate £1 to help support disability sport and the charities and clubs that make it possible.
Irwin Mitchell want people who are currently involved in disability sport and those who aren't to pledge to Be Part Of It this year.
It can be something you already do, or something you really want to, or something you never thought you could do.
Head over to their Be Part Of It section of the website to find out more and make your pledge today.
There are 12 million people with disabilities in the UK but only one in six takes part in sport regularly and Irwin Mitchell want this to change.
Due to the work they do with people who have suffered life changing injuries, as well as those who support and care for them, they recognise the psychological, social and rehabilitative benefits that physical activity and playing sport can have.
Irwin Mitchell's 'Don't Quit, Do It' campaign showcases the many benefits of sport in helping people recover from serious injuries and other major traumas in their lives.
