About the Project

On a national basis and indeed a sport by sport basis there is differing interpretations on what Mainstreaming means and how best to achieve it. The definition of a successful Mainstreaming system would allow for people with a disability to participate fully;“how the participation of people with disabilities in sport can be guaranteed is simple in accordance with their individual preferences, wishes and choices.”(Inclusion in sport disability and participation, F Kiuppis 2018). However, when viewed on European level the applicability of this statement can be approximated to apply only to a small minority.
