Sense and the ukactive Research Institute are partnering together to understand in more detail how families with a child or children with complex disabilities engage in physical activity.
Parents of disabled children are encouraged to feed back on the challenges they face when it comes to accessing sport and physical activity, by completing an online survey by Sunday 15th March.
The project will explore the barriers and motivations of the families, and also look at access to provision, the challenges of families being active together, the impact on siblings with no disability, and if there are differences between community and education provision.
Following the initial research, Sense will establish a national activity programme for disabled children and evaluate the impact of it on the child and the wider family.
Are you a parent of a disabled child? Our friends @sensecharity are interested to hear your family’s experiences of accessing sport and physical activity. This will help them develop new services and support. Take part in their survey today! https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Sensesurvey_
