We are looking for local authorities to collaborate with

We are looking for local authorities (adult social care and public health) to collaborate with.

Disability Rights UK is working with local partners to increase opportunities for disabled people to get active through working with social care, health and public health colleagues across the country.

Sport England have funded the Get Yourself Active project for the last three years to build relationships across disabled peoples organisations, social care, health and the sport sector. We have made particular progress in improving outcomes for people in receipt of personal budgets and we are working towards demonstrating the impact of this on level of service use. Essentially, we believe that we can show that as a result of better approaches to knowledge and information about physical activity, people will start to use public services differently.

We have just announced that our project has been extended by one year starting from February 2018. In year four we would like to find areas with an interest in exploring this approach so that we can share our evidence base and models of practice as well as measure the impact of this.

Please do get in touch with Leanne Wightman at if any of the above interests you.
