Hi, I work for the English Federation of Disability Sport, a national charity whose aim is to increase sports participation among disabled people.
We are currently running a survey to better understand disabled people's hobbies and interests to help us develop more interesting sports interventions. We want to speak to all disabled people, whether or not they currently take part in sport.
The survey can be completed online at www.tinyurl.com/efdssurvey by both disabled people themselves and people who represent them (parents and guardians etc). If you want to take part but do not want to complete an online questionnaire please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07817 787 542 to organise a telephone interview
Thank you in advance for your help and Merry Christmas
Hi I have sang your praises on many occasions on this site to try and get more children with disabilities to access the events that EFDS offer, so it is so nice to see a posting from yourselves. My dd has attended the Mini Games/Festival of Sport and many swimming events and is really keen to play boccia competitively but sadly there are no groups or activities at her school to include boccia. I really hope that all the mumsnettters help with this questionnaire, although it might be a good idea to repost this in the special needs children's part of mumsnet too and include a link not only to the survey but also to the homepage so mumsnetters will browse around and find what's happening and local events for them Good luck-your events have certainly given my dd inspiration and helped her choose a sport that she can take part with children similar to her and give her a fair chance to competition....it has given her so much confidence and improved her outlook to being a child with a disability.
