This publication has been produced by Sport England.
Mapping Disability: the facts has been created to give an overview of disability within the population. Its purpose is to inform and direct strategy and delivery, improving choice and opportunity for disabled people to regularly take part in sport.
Disabled people are much less likely to regularly take part in sport than nondisabled people. Disability is a complex market, with huge variations in people’s needs and preferences. We realise that a ‘one size fits all’ strategy won’t work if we’re to get more disabled people active.
The information contained in this pack is only part of the picture. It’s designed to be used together with other research from Sport England and their partners about this population,
including barriers, motivations and practical examples of how best to communicate.
