Activity Alliance: New report shows more to do to reduce disabled people’s inactivity

Four in five disabled people want to be more active but demand is not being met. Only two in five feel they are given the opportunity to be as active as they would like to be. Worryingly, this level of inequality is resulting in a more negative experience, including social isolation for many disabled people. The findings come from a ground-breaking report released by Activity Alliance today, involving more than 2000 respondents.

Activity Alliance’s Annual Disability and Activity Survey is supported by Sport England. It gives an in-depth comparison of disabled and non-disabled adults’ experiences of sport and activity.Read More

Who says disabled people aren’t competitive?

Who says? gives positive evidence that replaces these negative ideas.Read More

Activity Alliance Releases Latest Engagement Resources

Activity Alliance has added to its suite of support with a set of engagement factsheets. From planning opportunities to measuring impact, the resources help providers to strengthen their work, enabling organisations to engage more disabled people to be and stay active for life.

Despite these recent positive results, the stark reality is disabled people are twice as likely to be inactive as non-disabled people.Read More

Almost half of disabled people (47%) fear losing their benefits if they are seen to be physically active, according to new research published by Activity Alliance.

The research is particularly important as disabled people count for one in five of Britain’s population, almost 14 million people. However, they are currently the least active group in society, and twice as likely as non-disabled people to be inactive.Read More
