Activity Alliance releases new engagement factsheet on supporting low income households
Posted: Sun, 12 Jul 2020 14:20
Research from Sport England shows that disabled people from lower socioeconomic groups are much more likely to be physically inactive than disabled people from higher socioeconomic groups (43% vs 29%). And, three times more likely to be inactive than non-disabled people from higher socioeconomic groups inactive (43% vs 14%).
This new factsheet provides insight on how deprivation affects some disabled people's lives. It explores the relationship between poverty and disability. And, how both the causes and consequences of deprivation can impact a person's desire, choice and opportunity to be active.
The factsheet covers the following topics:
- Poverty among disabled people
- Activity levels among low socioeconomic groups
- How low socioeconomic status impacts activity - factors that can influence disabled people
- Considerations for successful engagement and delivery
