Supporting Disability

One in five people in England have a long-standing limiting disability or illness. Data suggests that disabled people are almost twice as likely to be physically inactive (43%), compared with those without a disability (23%).

This inequality increases sharply as the number of impairments a person has increases, with 51% of people with three or more impairments inactive. If these population disparities are not addressed, the inequalities that already exist for disabled people will increase.

This page contains resources that will help to support those with disabilities to move more.
