Boccia is a sport similar to bowls for athletes with a disability, also available at Active Zone Lakes College.
Workington sports center has fun multi sports coaching session for young people aged 12 - 19 with a disability for learning difficulties. It runs from 4.45pm - 5.50pm and the cost is £1.50.

Compare And Contrast/Analyse
local sports centers i.e whitehaven and workington cater for dissabled people with specific doors, lifts and shower blocks in their facilities
Sports centers staff have relevant training and qualifications i.e level 1 in sport for assistant coaching upto level 4 for individual coaching, and provide specific classes for dissabled people. but instead of needing a specific level qualifications to work with elderly you just need coaching level 1 or 2.
Marketing And Engagement
Active Zone have specific disabled sessions on at certain times of the week for activities like boccia and fitness, disability football, zumba and fitness. Schools have after school clubs, there isnt many classes for older people though apart from gp refferals and bowling clubs. there isnt many specific clubs for disabled people under the age of 16
for younger people there is more of a chance to access facilities for sports in cumbria, and wider range of sports and exercise than compared to dissabled for an example after school clubs like seaton junior and infants that involve Karate, football and multi skills classes that cover lots of discaplins.
Advertisment for disabled people is minimal in cumbria, with very little infomation around towns etc about certain events. they only have a small flyer for only a few exercises and sports for the disabled but in the whitehaven sports centre they advertise lot of activities for young people which proves their is more advertisement for oportunities if you are not as disabled.
There is lots of development in the area for younger children, for example Sport England Small Grants Programme uses lottery funding to make awards of between £300 and £10,000 to not-for-profit organisations to help more young people (14+). whitehaven sports center has specific activities through out the week for kids under the age of 16 but the activezone doesnt have specific activities throughout the week for kids but they do have summer camps for football and sports.
The fab and 50 programme is being separated with the Carlisle leisure limited and the Carlisle city council which is runned through the sport and physical activity alliance which is the SPAA initiative. This programme has recently been added within 2013 and has added in some other specific sessions throughout the week which the fab and fifty members can access for just £1.50 per session but on Thursdays you pay £3 for as many activities that you would like to participate within.
