Disability Awareness Campaigns

In May, the IFI promoted Stroke Awareness Month to all IFI Mark facilities, to keep them informed of the different campaigns that charities and other organisations are running. This raises awareness of their for a particular cause.

For Inclusive Fitness these campaigns provide us with an opportunity to raise awareness of the benefits of physical activity amongst disabled people and those with medical conditions – there are very few medical conditions that exercise won’t bene fit.  We hope you were able to filter this information and resources that have been developed by these agencies through to the relevant people; Inclusive Activator or someone within your facility/gym who is responsible for local marketing and engagement. 

If you are already doing some great work within your local community engaging with disabled people and/or those who have medical conditions then it would be great to hear all about it so that we can start a library of good practice and case studies on our new website.
