ukactive has formed a cross-sector task force to help deliver its vision of a sector that is freely accessible and utilised by all, enabling everyone to be active and participate in whatever capacity they wish.
The Everyone Can Task Force is made up of leaders from the sport and physical activity sector who will work together to help realise the full potential of gyms, fitness and leisure facilities in supporting disabled people to be active.
The group forms part of the Everyone Can programme from ukactive, which is designed to improve inclusivity and accessibility for disabled people by bringing the sector together to grow the relationship with the disability sector, to raise awareness, and to convene operators and suppliers to share learnings and evidence.
The Everyone Can Task Force will provide leadership on the agenda and also help to develop practical guidance for fitness and leisure operators to tackle the barriers and challenges faced by disabled people, while highlighting the demand from disabled people and the opportunities available through better engagement.
Alongside ukactive and public and private operators from its membership, the task force includes Activity Alliance, Sport England, the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity, and the Swimming Teachers' Association.
