The Get Yourself Active team at Disability Rights UK are working with Sense to find out how disabled people have been staying active during the coronavirus outbreak, what is helping to keep active, and if there is anything more that could support people to keep active during this time. 

They've created a survey to help understand more about the experiences of disabled people, and people with long term health conditions, around staying active during the coronavirus outbreak. They will then be creating resources that reflect the views and experiences that have been shared through this survey, which will be useful for helping people to get and stay active during crises.

They will also be giving away two Amazon vouchers worth £60 and £100 which will be issued to two randomly selected participants of the survey.

You can fill in the survey at Staying Active During the Coronavirus Outbreak or complete the Easy Read PDF and email the completed document back to Lydia whose contact information is listed on the PDF.
