Physical Impairment National Disability Sports Organisations release resource to support community members

The four physical impairment National Disability Sports Organisations (NDSOs), have today released a dedicated resource to inform community members about the impairment specific traditional, online and video resources created to support them in engaging in physical activity during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.

These resources support our efforts to reach out to inactive disabled people offering engagement, advice and guidance tailored to their needs as a physically impaired disabled person.

Our face-to-face delivery programmes have been postponed or cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We have individually and collectively looked at delivery methods to reach and support disabled people in their homes though physical activity, sports specific and social resources including online classes, live exercise sessions, pre-recorded exercise sessions, virtual challenges, online chats and Q & A Zoom calls.

We are mindful that many physically disabled people may require more support right now as many of our community members are shielding or self-isolating and have been for a considerable time. It is more important than ever to keep our community fit and healthy so these traditional, online and video resources are a vital lifeline to support our community members who are shielding or self-isolating and still want to exercise safely.

The National Disability Sports Organisations (NDSOs) are a good starting point for many disabled people who want to be more active. NDSOs provide engagement advice, support and opportunities for people of all ages with specific impairments.
