The Activity Alliance
The Activity Alliance helps organisations to include disabled people in their programmes and support more disabled people to be active.
Find out what they can offer your club, organisation or community group below.
- Resources to support clubs, organisations and groups who offer physical activity opportunities for disabled people to be more inclusive and engage more people with a disability.
- Training and workshops to empower your with practical tools, creative ideas and give you access to many resources.
- Research providing the latest insights into how disabled people engage with physical activity to inform your practice.
- Covid-19 specific support. The impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on disabled people and sport and activity has been enormous. This page provides the range of resources and responses we have released since March 2020 to support your strategies and conversations. It also includes a link to the latest FAQs on exemptions and guidelines.
Making Sport Accessible to Individuals with a Visual Impairment
UK Coaching and The Thomas Pocklington Trust have created a toolkit to support those working within leisure, sports and physical activity environments to make activities more accessible to individuals living with a visual impairment.
The toolkit has been split into four sections. These are:
- What is a Visual Impairment?
- What Makes an Accessible Environment
- Guiding and Communicating
- The Benefits of an Accessible Environment
Each section is packed with guides, tips and videos, as well as further signposting.
Get Yourself Active
Get Yourself Active is a programme led by Disability Rights UK and funded by Sport England which aims to lead change in the social care, health and sport sectors to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for disabled people.
In November 2021, they released a resource pack to develop your knowledge of physical activity, help you to have more conversations with disabled people you support about getting active and how to provide active support, as well as giving you ideas to build exercise into everyday activities. The pack is targeted at supporting adults, but the information can be adapted to working with children.
