impact on physical activity (16)

BBS are pleased to announce the expansion of First Steps across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. First Steps is a project conceived by British Blind Sport to empower and encourage children between the ages of 3 – 11 years old with a visual impairment to develop their early developmental movement skills and to become physically active.

Comparing data for March 29, 2020, with baseline data from Jan 3 to Feb 6, 2020, we saw a 63% overall reduction in movement, with retail and recreational areas (decreased by 85%; not surprising given restrictions imposed on this sector) and transit stations (decreased by 75%) showing the largest reductions.
