In June 2020, we published Reopening Activity: An inclusive response, in consultation with partners across sport, leisure and disability equality. We encourage providers to consider this guidance as part of their ongoing commitment to disabled people’s inclusion.

The resource covers areas such as session planning, engagement, and workforce. It complements and builds on other guidelines from government, Sport England, professional associations, and governing bodies.
