This overview helps those working in sport and leisure to understand the wider impact COVID-19 is having on disabled people and activity levels. The findings collated from secondary resources give a snapshot of what challenges we may face in the future.

Research shows that disabled people and people with long-term health conditions are more adversely affected by COVID-19 than any other population.

The document explores disabled people’s feelings and the challenges brought to the forefront by the crisis. It captures research on disabled people’s lives in general, and specifically their motivation and ability to be physically active.
