Who we are

We are a charitable organisation made up of athletes, parents, sports development professionals, coaches and people with an interest in disability sport. Our aim is to ensure that high quality sporting opportunities are on offer throughout Grampian, and that people with disabilities across the region are given the opportunity to reach their potential in sport.

Our activities include coach education, sport and activity development, supporting athletes and clubs at all stages, and running our own programme of events. Please get in touch if you’d like to get involved or hear more about what we offer.

Our Volunteers

Volunteering is the lifeblood of what we do. A strong pool of volunteers enables us to gain new ideas, support activities and athletes across our diverse and rural landscape, and provide high-quality competitive and recreational opportunities for our athletes.

Volunteering with GDS offers a range of benefits including gaining nationally-recognised qualifications and experience across a range of sporting opportunities in an uplifting and fun-filled environment. No experience or qualifications are needed – just an interest in sport and a passion for making a difference to people with disabilities.
