There are lots of things to do in Cambridgeshire. You might want to take up a sport, have a day out, volunteer or do some training.

Being involved in some kind of exercise or sport can really help morale, physical and mental health as well as helping you make friends. 

For sports, swimming, exercise, and leisure pursuits, the district councils provide a good starting point and have details about leisure opportunities in their areas:

Living Sport promotes opportunities for people with disabilities.

Papworth Trust can provide information and advice, as well as activities.

The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain gives reviews and information on accessible days out.

AccessAble (also see link on right) aims to take the chance out of going out. It is a directory of services which are accessible - for example wheelchair access, sign language is spoken, guide dogs are allowed, or there is audio support.

Volunteering can be a great way to meet people, learn skills and be involved in your community.

General information about volunteering.

Volunteering with Cambridgeshire Libraries.

If you are aged up to 24, and have a learning difficulty or disability, the Local Offer sets out the support available.

Safe Places

Safe places schemes run in part of the county and help vulnerable people if they feel scared or at risk while out and about. Safe places display stickers in their windows to tell people they are taking part in the scheme.
