Disability Rights UK will be running a series of learning events across the country this autumn to share the experiences and insight so far on one of its pilot programmes, Get Yourself Active (GYA).
The key aim of the programme is to increase participation of disabled people in physical activity and we do this by working with local partners from disabled people’s user led organisations, social care, health and the sport sector. The impact of the project has been found through key outcomes relating to increased wellbeing, increased confidence and greater independence for personal budget recipients and disabled people more generally. We are working closely with our partners across the country to achieve this.
The events will be an opportunity to…
- Listen to presentations from GYA partners about their experience of coproducing better approaches to physical activity opportunities with and for disabled people
- Learn about our key findings from evaluation and research carried out in partnership with OPM and the University of Birmingham
- Discuss how you might be involved in developing these approaches locally and nationally with colleagues from different sectors
