Essex sport for all month is taking place this June. This is a campaign to raise awareness of the opportunities available for disabled people to take part in sport and physical activity in Essex.
Research shows that most disabled people are not as active as they would like to be. According to Sport England four out of five disabled people take little or no exercise. However, that is not because disabled people do not want to be active. The English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) Lifestyle Report found that seven in ten disabled people want to increase their physical activity.
Active Essex is committed to working with key partners to increase and promote the opportunities available for disabled people in Essex to lead an active lifestyle.
