Return to Sport after Lockdown

As sport and physical activity facilities and opportunities continue to reopen, it is important to consider the safe return for people with disabilities.  People with disabilities have highlighted 5 key principles within the National Sport Inclusion Disability Charter which they feel are important factors to consider in supporting their participation in sport and physical activity.  Taking the impact of Covid 19 into consideration, the following guide aims to ensure a safe and inclusive return for everyone.


We encourage the sports, fitness and leisure, outdoors, health and education sectors to use this guidance document to enable a safe and inclusive return to sport and physical activity for everyone.
