■■Less than a third of disabled people (32 per cent) agree that organised sport is for someone like them

We are all too aware that there’s an unacceptably high gap in activity levels between disabled and non-disabled people Alliance and our partners. This report will be key to helping us – as well as others – to begin changing the reality of disability, inclusion and sport.” Tim Hollingsworth, CEO of Sport England, added: “At Sport England we are all too aware that there’s an unacceptably high gap in activity levels between disabled and non-disabled people, and that despite a desire to be more active, many disabled people are missing out on the range of benefits that can be gained through physical activity. “Activity Alliance’s first Annual Survey increases our insight into this issue and throws down a challenge to all in the physical activity sector: to use this new understanding to make sure that far more disabled people can get physically active in a way that is right for them. "It’s a challenge that personally I know we must take up.” l FEBRUARY 2020 © Cybertrek 2020
