New EFDS engagement resources available now

The English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) marked International Day for Disabled People, recently by revealing brand new engagement resources. Building on the success of the inclusive communications animation, EFDS has released its next film for engaging disabled people. Complementing the animation is a collection of free fact sheets that enable organisations to plan, target and deliver activities more effectively. The national charity hopes these resources will lead to more successful engagement ideas for disabled people to be and stay active for life.

Sport England’s Active People Survey consistently reveals low numbers for active disabled people. Year on year, statistics indicate disabled people are still half as likely to be active as non-disabled people. In order to tackle low participation rates, through their new strategies, Government and Sport England emphasise their funding focus will be on inactive audiences.

This stronger focus makes EFDS’s new resources extremely timely for providers across many sectors. Supported by Sport England, EFDS wants to help others to strengthen their engagement with and increase opportunities for disabled people.
