This report by Activity Alliance explores non-disabled people’s experiences and perceptions of taking part in sport and active recreation with their disabled peers. It focuses on the concept of inclusive activity, in which disabled and non-disabled people take part together. Using an online survey utilising ‘implicit association testing’, Activity Alliance sought to understand underlying, deep rooted perceptions.
The results of the survey are detailed in the report, covering a wide range of perceptions about disabled people and physical activity. The report includes a series of recommendations such as embedding inclusivity in many more opportunities and increasing public awareness of disabled people in relation to being active, alongside how these would be put into practise.
