New Inclusive recovery research to tackle growing inequalities
Activity Alliance released its ‘Inclusive recovery’ research report. The research in partnership with BritainThinks explored how disabled people can be included and supported further following the COVID-19 pandemic. It also looked at the challenges that providers and people who deliver activities had and continue to have as the nation recovers. The insight shows we need to support providers to develop and recover more inclusively if we are to tackle rising inequalities for disabled people in sport and activity.
