Government publish National Disability Strategy

Activity Alliance (The national charity and leading voice for disabled people in sport and activity) responds to the National Disability Strategy.

A new National Disability Strategy published today, 28 July 2021, outlines how the government will support disabled people. Departments and agencies in government set out how they will help bring about practical and lasting change to disabled people’s lives. Sport is recognised within the strategy under a focus policy area.

The strategy sets out immediate and long-term actions to improve disabled people’s daily opportunities and experiences.

The Strategy states a need to widen participation in sport and that sports venues have a duty to provide an environment that is welcoming and inclusive of everyone, irrespective of disability. There is an overriding message that government wants sport to be at the forefront of equality. It expects all sports and all clubs to take the action needed to ensure this.

Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport commitments include to work with Sport England to address the inequalities faced by disabled people in sport and physical activity. There is an immediate recognition to:

- widen participation in arts, culture and sport

- improve access to paths

- make playgrounds more inclusive
