Welcome to our Inclusive Spaces page

We have included links below to some of the organisations and individuals working to increase diversity and create safe spaces for physical activity within our communities.

These groups are not affiliated with Active Derbyshire and Active Notts so we cannot take responsibility for any activities that you take part in through them. Many of these groups are small community projects run by volunteers. Please make sure that you do your own checks, ask your own questions and make sure safeguarding policies and insurance is in place where it is required.
