Inclusive Sport: Disability and Para sport

Tuesday, December 13, 2022

The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games showcased a record number of para sports with a total of 8 para sports in the programme.  However, this increasing spotlight on para sport isn’t necessarily leading to increased participation across the board.   


Recent Activity Alliance research suggests that less than one in five non-disabled people have experience of taking part in sport and less than half disabled and non-disabled people actually know someone else with a disability.  The need for solutions and action is pressing. It is clear that organisations need to both raise the profile of and opportunities for disabled people to engage in sport and physical activity, from participation and performance sport to coaching, employment and board roles.
