Active Beyond Education?

December 14, 2015

Active Beyond Education? explores young disabled people’s experiences of sport and physical activity, during the transition from education to adulthood. 

The key findings highlight a clear need to engage disabled people in sport and physical activity at a young age, in order to prevent later life inactivity.

The report illustrates some of the ways to prevent a decline in participation as people move into adulthood. Commissioned by six of the UK’s National Disability Sports Organisations (NDSOs) - British Blind Sport, Cerebral Palsy Sport, Dwarf Sports Association UK, LimbPower, UK Deaf Sport and WheelPower, in partnership with the English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) and supported by Sport England’s Inclusive Sport Fund.

The NDSOs will use the findings to shape future provision of sport and physical activity for young disabled people and support more people with specific impairments to be active.

Active Beyond Education? is available in both Accessible PDF and plain Word format. http://www.efds.co.uk/resources/research/4765_active_beyond_education
