Ability Sports and Social North East was founded in 2020.

It was set up to give adults with intellectual (learning) difficulties the opportunity to engage in sports and social activities.

Studies show regular exercise and social interactions significantly improves well being, boosts self-esteem, lowers stress levels and improves quality of life.


We work alongside The Newcastle Foundation and run 2 weekly sessions on a Monday & Thursday 10.20-2.30 at the new NUcastle Foundation building on Diana Street.


Sports include football, golf, cricket, hockey, indoor Kurling and athletics (we are a member of the Special Olympics).


We also go on a mindful walk around Leazes Park.
All abilities welcome. Please get in touch for more information.
