On Tuesday 11 June 2024, we will release our latest Annual Disability and Activity Survey report. Over 2,000 people took part in the survey from October to November last year. Since then, we’ve been working with disabled people and key partners to explore the data. It gives detailed insight into disabled people’s participation and experience in sport and activity over the last five years.  

Our project complements Sport England’s Active Lives Survey, helping us understand why disabled people are still twice as likely to be inactive as non-disabled people. 

This year, our report focuses on five key areas: 

  • Participation and experiences
  • The legacy of COVID-19 and the cost-of-living crisis
  • Outdoor spaces and active travel
  • Mental wellbeing and loneliness
  • Representation and belonging

We will also release a separate report shortly after exploring the differences between disabled people with different types of impairment. 

The full report will be available on our website research page

Online event: Wednesday 12 June 2024: 11am – 12pm

Our free online webinar will explore the key findings with research participants and discuss areas for action. Join us to find out more about what this means for the sector and beyond.  

The webinar will help you to:

  • Understand key findings, including key areas for change and action.  
  • Hear from research participants on their lived experience, and how we worked together in the project. 
  • Hear about how to collectively use the findings and our asks to help create positive change.
