Support workers vital in tackling inactivity for people with complex disabilities

A report published by the disability charity, Sense, has highlighted the role support workers play in getting people with complex disabilities physically active.

Released in partnership with Traverse and Sport England, the new report: ‘Support Workers: attitudes, approaches and barriers to helping people with complex disabilities engage in sport and physical activity’, contains analysis of the experience of support workers, which it recognises as “playing a critical role in encouraging, informing and helping adults with complex disabilities to access sport and physical activity.”
