WESTERN ISLES DISABILITY SPORT

WIDS was formed to provide sports and recreation to the disabled throughout the whole of the Western Isles irrespective of age or level of disability. We were formed in March 2001

The main branch is in Stornoway where the Charity Headquarters is based. We also have two sub branches. One is in Barra the southern most Island in the group and it has a thriving group who meet at least once a week for activities like Boccia & New Age Kurling. The second branch is in South Uist and their main activity is swimming.

We are a non profit making charity, we have no paid employees, all officers and committee members are volunteers. Our regular activity is held each Thursday and consists in the sole use of a hydrotherapy pool, a gymnasium adapted to meet the needs of people with disabilities and a recreation room.

Here we put on a selection of activities including, New Age Kurling, which is popular with a great majority of our members, Boccia, Goal Ball, Skittles, Polybat and Super Foam Croquet just to mention a few.

In our short history. We are proud to have achieved success in National Competitions and look forward to the regular Inter Island competitions. We also want to throw down the gauntlet to any other organisation who would like to compete, either here or an agreed venue.

Everyone is welcome age, ability or disability, is not a issue. Our challenge is to provide sport and recreation for all, our members challenge is to enjoy it.

NEW: Please take the "Dial A Bus Questionnaire!"
