A national disability games could be set up in Bermuda, sports minister Michael Weeks said today.

Mr Weeks told the House of Assembly consultation aimed at helping disabled people get involved in sports should finish next month, and an action plan will be created by October.

He said: “Perhaps the time has come for the establishment of a national disability games in Bermuda.

“We will consult directly with persons with disabilities to get their feedback on their level of participation in sports.”

Groups such as Windreach Bermuda and the Bermuda Paralympic Association will also be engaged.
