Parent of a disabled child or children facing barriers to access physical activity?

Sense and the ukactive Research Institute are working together to find out how families with a child with complex disabilities take part in physical activity.  Sense and UK active Research Institute want to know what motivates but what challenges families with disabled children face when accessing sport and physical activity. An online survey is open until Sunday 15th March.

After the responses have been analysed Sense will establish a national activity programme for disabled children and evaluate the impact of it on the child and the wider family.
