The Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) is a programme, which offers disabled people more choice and opportunities to enjoy the benefits of physical activity. IFI operates an accreditation scheme for facilities. Called the IFI Mark, which recognises the achievements and commitment of facilities that enable disabled people to become physically active.
