Activity Alliance is calling time on negative perceptions through its campaign,‘Who says?’. The charity wants disabled children and young people to have the same opportunities to be active as their non-disabled peers.
Research highlights that there is significant work to do for it to be a level playing field for disabled children and young people in sport and activity. Only a quarter participate in sport and activity all the time at school compared to 41 per cent of non-disabled children.
Disabled people of all ages have countless personal experiences that lead to marginalisation, low confidence and inactivity. Who says? empowers people of all ages, on and off the field of play, to challenge their own and others’ perceptions.
