Help make Badminton available to all!

Make Badminton Available to All!

Here is an exciting opportunity to express your views on how to make Badminton more available to blind and partially sighted individuals!

Badminton England Needs You

 Original article in a BBS Newsletter

As part of its Diversity and Inclusion campaign, Badminton England is undertaking a study aimed at understanding the barriers to play and improving the accessibility of the sport.

British Blind Sport is working closely with Badminton England to explore the possibilities within the sport and ensure that visually impaired people have the opportunity to participate. To do this, we need to understand your experiences, challenges and needs.

The survey will allow Badminton England to gain further insight into how they can make meaningful changes to support under-represented groups in their sport.

Everyone is welcome to complete the Diversity & Inclusion survey and share their experiences. All responses will remain confidential.

Badminton England Diversity & Inclusion Consultation

Badminton England – Inclusion for all video  Below

“At Badminton England we strongly believe that everyone should be able to access and enjoy our sport regardless of their gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, background or circumstances.

We are committed to embedding inclusive practice across badminton and passionate that we are stronger together when trying to achieve this aim.

Covid-19 has undoubtedly affected us all with the latest Government announcements and restrictions meaning we cannot currently get on court to play. Recently published Sport England research however, found that disabled people, people with long-term health conditions and people from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic groups have been disproportionately impacted.

So, we believe now is the time to come together as a sport – through learning, understanding and practice – to demonstrate our desire to be a sport for all. We commit to improving our understanding of experiences and removing barriers to play, because we know that we are a community that is stronger together.”

How To Get Involved

They have also launched the Badminton England Inclusion Hub, a large resource to help clubs and sessions be more inclusive. Finally, Badminton England encourages you to share your successes and stories with the #StrongerTogether hashtag on Social Media.

National Eye Research Centre: Survey!

National Eye Research Centre survey

How You Can Help in Just 10 Minutes

Take 10 minutes to make a huge contribution to the world of sight…

By giving just 10 minutes of your time today, you can transform the future of eye research.

Did you know, in the UK eye research only receives 1% of national medical research funding? This is nowhere near enough, but with your help we can change that.

We’re asking our supporters and the wider community to share their experiences with us so that we can help more people to understand the desperate need for further investment in eye research.

By taking just 10 minutes to complete a short survey, you will be playing a crucial part in progress and you will be making your mark on future treatments and sight saving solutions.

We would be extremely grateful if you would please take this version of the survey.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts.

The survey is anonymous and we will send a summary to any participating group once the results have been received.

If you are interested in taking part, but have questions, please do let me know a good time to call and I will reach you on 07508 958 927 so that we can discuss this further.

Museum and heritage site access survey

1. About the survey

Have you visited a museum or heritage site in the UK in the past 12 months and used access facilities or support?* If so, please take our survey and let us know about your experiences.

We are also interested to hear from people acting as companions, personal assistants or carers, accompanying children or adults using access facilities or support.

*Access facilities and support includes, for example, accessible / Blue Badge parking, accessible / Changing Places toilets, alternative formats (braille, captions, large print, transcripts), audio description, British Sign Language interpretation, digital or live subtitles, hearing loop, sensory map / Visual Story, step-free access.

VocalEyes, Stagetext and Autism in Museums are access organisations working in the arts and heritage sector.

We’ve teamed up to research visitor experiences so we can better inform the thousands of venues across the UK to what extent they are meeting or failing to meet the access requirements of their visitors.

The survey has 24 questions and should take about 20 minutes to complete.

Calling all qualified PE teachers!

Survey for Quaified PE Teachers on Inclusion

Survey by Teesside University – An investigation into the inclusion of disabled children and young people in PE in England.

Calling all qualified PE teachers – Please spare 5 minutes to complete a survey on the inclusion of disabled children and young people in PE in England.

The aim of this study is to investigate the suitability of initial teacher training (ITT) for the inclusion of disabled children and young people in Physical Education (PE) in England (at both primary and secondary levels).

I have contacted Dr Tom Gibbons, Senior Lecturer in Sport & Exercise, Teesside University to expand on the barriers and obstacles preventing blind and partially sighted children taking part in activities in main stream schools.

Yesterday I attended the Visual Impairment, Sport and Physical Activity Workshop at the University of Central Lancashire based in Preston along with other universities, occupational therapists and national governing bodies of sport.

Happy to share the outcome of yesterday’s meeting, the group plan to meet again in 6 months’ time and apply for future grants.
