Starting in January 2021, our partner – Disability Rights UK – is releasing a series of ‘Active at Home‘ videos they have developed alongside Sense and Durham University.  These are accessible pre-recorded videos to support disabled people to get active at home during the coronavirus outbreak.

Get Yourself Active‘ is an initiative aimed at understanding what challenges disabled people face in accessing physical activity. This includes how the disability and sport sectors can best provide disabled people with a choice of accessible, encouraging and innovative physical activities. Over the last four years Get Yourself Active has built upon its evidence-base, which has led to the following three strands of work: local coordinator, social worker guidelines and co-production.

Throughout the pandemic they have collected some of the best resources to help people stay active which can be found on the Active at Home page. The new ‘Get Yourself Active at Home timetable is now available and videos will be released throughout January and February on to their new YouTube channel. The timetable includes four series all led by different trainers and involving a variety of different activities that can be carried out from the comfort of your home.
