They are beginning to become a fitter community because of its "active community" schemes because over ten million pounds was invested in new sports facilities and sport spaces. The national association of sports development is more affective as it has had more successes so to so speak. However you cannot compare the two organizations head on as they have different aims and objectives where The National Association for Sports Development (NASD) has had successes in sports development schemes The English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) has had success in its own areas. The only area that the NASD need to work on is to help increase participation of the disabled people because they don't work as hard and fund for them as much as they do for the communities compared to the EFDS. However they do try and work on them trying to get more involved in sport.
