Activity Alliance launches its new three-year strategy as poll shows pandemic impact on disabled people

Back to News

Posted 12th May 2021

Just over 7 in 10 disabled people (72%) agree that the coronavirus pandemic has made sport and physical activity less fair for disabled people.

This is one of the headline findings of a new YouGov poll commissioned by Activity Alliance, the leading voice for disabled people in sport and activity. The poll also revealed that only 3 in 10 (30%) disabled people agree that disabled people have the same opportunity to be active as non-disabled people.

Today, they launch their new 2021-2024 Strategy – Achieving Fairness, with an immediate focus on how to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The strategy sets out a response to the issues raised by the pandemic. It also identifies four key objectives for the organisation over the next three years (2021-2024):

  1. Champion disabled people’s voices and maximise Activity Alliance’s visibility
  2. Use high-quality expertise and insight to educate and inform decision making, and influence policy
  3. Address inequalities through collaboration, improving engagement and delivery with and for disabled people
  4. Maximise the use of investment and that of our partners to enable disabled people’s activity.
