Get Yourself Active reacts to Sport England statement on why sport for disabled people matters

Thursday 12th July 2018

Sue Bott CBE, Deputy CEO of Disability Rights UK says:

“We’re delighted Sport England want to partner with groups engaged with disabled people and will be happy to play our part. We know you can’t simply urge disabled people to be more active. There has to be an acknowledgement of, and ways to overcome, the social, environmental and attitudinal barriers disabled people face. Our Get Yourself Active project has shown how, with the support of disabled people’s organisations, disabled people can become more physically active.”

The statement by Sport England can be found here.
