Nearly one hundred and fifty disabled people have taken part in a study into how we produce knowledge and information about physical activity aimed at disabled people in partnership with the University of Birmingham.
All of them including our volunteer for Get Yourself Active Iyiola have received a fifteen pound Amazon Gift Voucher and have been entered into a draw for a £100 one.
Nearly one hundred and fifty people is a major milestone for a research project and we’d like to thank everyone who has taken part so far. We’d also like to thank everyone who has shared our calls for participants which has helped us get to this point.
However we still need more disabled people to complete a roughly fifteen minute online questionnaire and a follow up one. So if you:
- Consider yourself disabled and affected by one or more of the following impairments: amputation, spinal cord injury, restricted growth, Cerebral Palsy, visual impairment, hearing impairment
- Have been unable to take part regularly in physical activity or sport for a while
- Are over the age of 18
And would like to take part contact Eva Jaarsma, Research Fellow at University of Birmingham by e-mailing her at: E.Jaarsma@bham.ac.uk . When you contact her give her your name and the best way for the researcher to contact you. We will then arrange a time for you to take part in the research from your own home. Once your bit is done you will receive your £15 Amazon voucher.
If you can’t take part for any reason then please do share this call with anyone who might be interested.
Thanks for reading and we’re looking forward to seeing more disabled people take part in what is an interesting project!
