Arts provides workshops for sports and recreation for children,
young people and adults with special needs and disabilities particularily wheelchair users, in
Greater London and the UK.
Zodiac Arts fills a gap for special needs sports.
Our creativity and adaptability allows us to make use of equipment designed for mainstream sports and recreation activities as well as ordinary everyday items and adapt and tailor make them for individual clients with special needs, as well as for carers and parents.
For example: having fun is what is important so we use the basic concepts of well known games such as Table Tennis, Volleyball and Boccia and remove the rules so that people with special needs can take part in whatever way they can. We have a range of activities. Click to see the flyer and find out more about new sessions.

and young people with special needs and disabilities to improve
their quality of life, enable them to fully
participate in the community, take part in sports and recreational activities, build their confidence,

We provide a sports and recreational based programme for the community whatever their ethnicity, religion or background in the Uk.
As a newly formed volunteer organisation
with charitable objectives Zodiac Arts has spent
considerable time and resources focusing on
providing a quality service which gives value
for money and adheres to best value. Furthermore
we have been able to volunteer various services
to cater for the individual needs and skills
of the users and their families.
