Welcome to the Peter Harrison Centre for Disability Sport.
Our mission is to improve knowledge about Paralympic sport and to promote the substantial health and quality of life benefits that can be gained through participation in disability sport and physical activity. The centre is heavily involved in research, in addition to providing sport science support to a number of GB squads.
An opportunity has arisen to join the team at the Institute for Sport and Physical Activity Research (ISPAR), University of Bedfordshire, to assist in research into sedentary behaviour and health of people with spinal cord injury
