Potential Barriers to Participation in Sport or Activity

Today we invite you to take part in our biggest survey yet. This project, which has been developed by the University of Nottingham in collaboration with CP Sport, aims to identify potential barriers that play a role in inhibiting sporting participation. Following the research, we hope to fill those gaps to make physical activity and sport more accessible for all.

You will be asked a series of short questions and it should only take around 15-20 minutes of your time.

We would appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey. Our hope is to use your answers to help national and local sporting organisations, such as CP Sport, Sport England and others, to remove barriers and build a more inclusive sporting environment for all. Please share with other CP groups you are involved with too, we also want to hear with people with CP who are not actively taking part in sport.

    Is this only for people with CP, @Richard_Scope? It applies to all disabilities, I feel.

    I hear how you feel it applies to all disabilities @Siwheels73. Unfortunately, it would seem it is only for people with CP - it says "celebral palsy sport".

    Hopefully, they will increase their reach to other disabilities in the future. Your feedback is always appreciated and I am sure will make a huge difference in the future  :)

    Thank you, @L_Volunteer. I realise that I have joined a group mainly based around Cerebral Palsy (and am extremely glad I did) but thought I would ask the question and wasn't wanting to cause bother - I do enough of that legitimately in the Count to 20 game, which reminds me...

    You are welcome @Siwheels73. It is the very least you deserve. No bother at all, you never know answers to questions you don't ask. Oh no, devil!  >:)  :D
