The fact sheet is the latest addition to a collection of engagement resources that advises organisations on how they can plan, target and deliver more appealing and accessible activities for disabled people. EFDS and Disability Rights UK hope this new resource will lead to more successful engagement ideas for disabled people to be and stay active for life.

The fact sheet covers the following topics:

  • What is the personalisation agenda?
  • What is a personal budget?
  • How do personal budgets link to being active?
  • Top tips for engaging personal budget holders and other disabled people in physical activity

Disability Rights UK supports personalisation and believes that independent living is about more than the care disabled people receive. It is about enhancing independence, wellbeing and quality of life. Being active is an important way to feel good, socialise and be part of the community.  

The fact sheet also provides information about Get Yourself Active – partnership project led by Disability Rights UK and funded by Sport England. They aim to work with health, social care and sports sectors to develop better opportunities for disabled people to be active whether they have a personal budget or not. Find out more on Get Yourself Active website.
