Exercise At Home

The ‘Sport England Active Lives Coronavirus Report’ (Oct 2020) shows that disabled people’s activity levels were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and they experienced a larger increase in inactivity levels. 56% of disabled people with 3 or more impairments are now inactive, rising by 11.2% from last year.

During this difficult time, it is more important than ever that we are supporting disabled people to be active in a way that is right for them.
