The Making Sense of Mini-Games resource is designed to help disabled people to be more active, with a booklet of suitable games and activities that can be enjoyed with little or no equipment or in any sized space. 

You can find step by step instructions included in each activity, as well as lists of equipment needed, how to make activities easier, harder or more sensory, and which outcomes can be achieved by taking part in the activity. 

It's been primarily designed for all people who support disabled people, whether they are teachers, parents, siblings, carers, support staff, sports coaches or volunteers. Disabled people who are independent may also use it as inspiration for their own activities. 

It's applicable for all ages, and offers suggestions to activities that can be done individually, or within a group setting (where applicable).

We're proud to share the #RediscoverSummer campaign.
