Being active with a disability or health conditionSave this item
Activity Alliance is a national charity that works with disabled people to make active lives possible. If you are not as active as you would like to be, or you know someone who isn’t, then they have lots of resources or contacts to help you on your way.
There are many ways to enjoy an active lifestyle including adapted sports for people with specific impairments, and inclusive sessions where disabled and non-disabled people can take part together.
One of their best resources is a guide created in partnership with Disability Rights UK for everyone with lived experience of a disability or health condition. It provides information about how to start to be more active in a quick, easy format.
Being active will improve your health and well-being physically and mentally regardless of your impairment. It will also have enormous social benefits. Your impairment or health condition may affect what you can do. But whatever your impairment or health condition, being more active can only make you fitter and healthier.
