As a member organisation of the Activity Alliance, Cerebral Palsy Sport is delighted to share their new 2018-2021 strategy, ‘Achieving Inclusion Together’.
Determined to change the reality of disability, inclusion and sport, the Activity Alliance looks to a future where disabled people are just as likely as non-disabled people to be active.
Disabled people count for one in five of our population, but are currently the least active group in society and twice as likely as non-disabled people to be inactive. Participation rates have remained stubbornly resistant to growth for many years, despite Activity Alliance’s research showing that seven in ten disabled people want to be more active.
The strategy drives Activity Alliance’s vision that disabled people are active for life. It builds upon the success as the English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) and sets the goals under the new operating name, Activity Alliance.
The strategy outlines the desire to see the number of active disabled people on a sustainable upward trajectory and has three strategic outcomes impacting at different levels:
Individual: Enhanced health and well-being for all disabled people (physical, mental, social, emotional and economic well-being).
Societal: A more equal society in which disabled people can achieve more through increased opportunities and choice.
Organisational: A system where organisations have fully embedded approaches to inclusion into their mainstream work so they can effectively support individual disabled people.
