EFDS seeks to deliver more appealing activities for people with disabilities

0 0


The ‘Talk to Me’ report released by EFDS this week provides guidelines for sport and fitness providers.

Less than half the number of registered disabled people in the UK currently take part in sport or physical activity for 30 minutes a week when compared to non disabled people. The demand levels however are high, with 70% of people with disabilities wishing to be more active.

In construction of the report, Talk to Me worked with providers and participants to produce a collaborative report based on driving awareness, audience engagement and offering support to those seeking to take up activity.

EFDS now plans to monitor how effectively these guidelines area adopted and followed in order to see whether disabled people’s aspirations are being met.
