How do families with disabled children engage in physical activity?

Fellow members of the Health & Wellbeing Alliance, Sense and the ukactive Research Institute are working together to understand how families with a child or children with complex disabilities engage in physical activity.

They are asking parents of disabled children to explain the challenges they face when it comes to accessing sport and physical activity, by completing this online survey by Sunday 15 March.

The project will explore the barriers and motivations of the families, and look at access to provision, the challenges of families being active together, the impact on siblings with no disability, and if there are differences between community and education provision.

Using this research Sense will establish a national activity programme for disabled children and evaluate the impact of it on the child and the wider family.

You can access the survey here. Please share this amongst your networks.
