Physical Impairment National Disability Sports Organisations release resource
Categories: Disability Sport
The four physical impairment National Disability Sports Organisations (NDSOs), have today released a dedicated resource to inform community members about the impairment specific traditional, online and video resources created to support them in engaging in physical activity during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
These resources support the NDSOs efforts to reach out to inactive disabled people offering engagement, advice and guidance tailored to their needs as a physically impaired disabled person.
With face-to-face delivery programmes postponed or cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, they have individually and collectively looked at delivery methods to reach and support disabled people in their homes though physical activity, sports specific and social resources including online classes, live exercise sessions, pre-recorded exercise sessions, virtual challenges, online chats and Q & A Zoom calls.
They are mindful that many physically disabled people may require more support right now as many of their community members are shielding or self-isolating and have been for a considerable time. It is more important than ever to keep the community fit and healthy so these traditional, online and video resources are a vital lifeline to support members who are shielding or self-isolating and still want to exercise safely.
The National Disability Sports Organisations (NDSOs) are a good starting point for many disabled people who want to be more active. NDSOs provide engagement advice, support and opportunities for people of all ages with specific impairments.
The four NDSOs who are part of this resource are:
