DRUK want to hear about your experiences of using fitness facilities!

Do you have a New Year’s fitness resolution? Are you concerned about whether you can access your local gym and fitness facilities? Does your local facility get behind accessibility in a way you want to cheer about?

Share your experiences of using fitness facilities with us before Friday 10 January.

DRUK is working with Love Productions which is producing a Channel 4 primetime programme on health and wellness.

Your data will be treated anonymously and this will help DRUK get a clearer picture of what works and what doesn’t when it comes to accessible fitness.




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.

assist-Mi, a Disabled Peoples User Led Organisation, are hosting a number of focus groups and we would like to invite you and anyone that you feel would want to get involved, to come along!Our groups take place in London, Coventry and Sunderlandand are being held to help shape an exciting new project to create an accessible rail travel solution for passengers with disabilities. We want to hear about real-life experiences; what do you find challenging when travelling on trains?

The new project is called SMART (Spontaneous Mobile Accessible Rail Travel) and uses a smartphone app called assist-Mi. assist-Mi offers users the ability to communicate real time with service providers and even request assistance from service providers in advance of arriving. The project will use this technology to help overcome the challenges that passengers with disabilities face in rail travel and help us to make 24-hour notice and pre-booking trains a thing of the past.
Whatever your experience of using trains, whether you are a regular commuter or very infrequent traveller, disabled user, friend, family or carer – we want to hear from you! Come by and get involved in the discussions around how rail travel for passengers with disabilities can be improved.
