“Don’t Quit, Do It” – Be Part Of It

Our ‘Don't Quit, Do It’ campaign aims to get more people playing, watching and supporting disability sport than ever before. To make this possible we need your help, we need you to pledge to Be Part Of It

For every pledge we receive, we will donate £1 to help support disability sport and the charities and clubs that make it possible. 

Your pledge 

We 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 our Be Part Of It section of the website to find out more and make your pledge today. 

Our ambassadors 

Hannah Cockroft, MBE is a proud ambassador of Be Part Of It and is keen to promote the many benefits of disability sport and encourage more people to play it, watch it or support it.

She said: "Disability sport doesn’t always get the coverage it deserves so it’s great to be able to promote the many reasons why it’s so much fun and fantastic to be a part of.

"Without players, supporters and volunteers there would be no wheelchair racing or any other disability sport for thousands of people to enjoy not just in this country but all over the world."

"We want you to pledge your support for disability sport and tell us how you’re going to get involved – together we can make an amazing difference.

England and Portsmouth Amputee Football Club captain Ray Westbrook lost his leg through cancer when he was 14 and thought he’d never kick a ball again before amputee football gave him a second chance to play the beautiful game.

A growing number of amputees are turning to football to help with their rehabilitation and recovery following a serious injury or illness and Ray wants to see more people play, watch and support a sport that showcases teamwork, skill and determination.

He said: “People said ‘he wouldn't be able to do this and do that’ but I have proved them wrong and the adrenaline rush when I play amputee football has made all the hard work worthwhile.

“I’m proud to be an ambassador for Be Part Of It and I’m urging everyone to support disability sport and pledge to try a new sport, watch a new sport or support one in any way you can.

“I helped to set up our team in Portsmouth and know the work people put in to give us the chance to play football again and train as a team together. If we get more people of all ages and abilities interested then there’s no limit to what we can achieve together.”

Don’t Quit, Do It

There are 12 million people with disabilities in the UK but only one in six takes part in sport regularly and we want this to change.

Due to the work we do with people who have suffered life changing injuries, as well as those who support and care for them, we recognise the psychological, social and rehabilitative benefits that physical activity and playing sport can have.

Our '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. 

You can find out more about our campaign here.

Amputee football

Team sports are a valuable opportunity for disabled people to meet others who have been in a similar situation. 

We’ve produced videos of three sports – amputee football, powerchair football and wheelchair rugby – that show the amazing impact that they’ve had on the lives of those that take part in them.
