About Us

The South Gloucestershire Union of Disability Sport (SUDS) was established in April 1998 (then known as SGSDF) to raise awareness of equality issues, create links and collate information.

Body
The group began by completing an audit of all South Gloucestershire's sports clubs to see if they offered opportunities to the disabled. Clubs offering good opportunities were then helped to make links with local schools. To raise awareness of issues the leisure centres all provided disability reps to act as a main point of contact for users with special needs.

In November 2000 the Forum held the first Access to Leisure day was held. Over 500 people attended that first day with many joining new clubs. Since then access events for football, sportability boccia, new age curling, bowls, tennis, and athletics have all taken place through the forum with hundreds of disabled people involved.

In September 2003 the forum was renamed SUDS and successfully applied for an Awards for All grant of £5,000 to run access days and produce a directory of local opportunities. Now with support from Bristol University and UWE we run additional multi sport sessions for disabled children and their siblings, and run a scholarship scheme to support performance athletes. We also work closely with BUDS (our Bristol counterparts) and hold joint meetings several times a year.
