Take part in Get Yourself  Active's Research  and Receive a £15  Amazon voucher

Disability Rights UK has partnered with University of Birmingham to conduct a study into how they produce knowledge and information about physical activity aimed at disabled people.

Disability Rights UK has been working with partners in disabled people’s user led organisations, such as Disability Sheffield to develop models of practice to support more disabled people to be active locally. The evidence gathered from this research will help them to understand how disabled people want physical activity knowledge to be communicated.

Who should take part in the research?

They would like to hear from you…
•If you consider yourself disabled and affected by one or more of the following impairments: amputation, spinal cord injury, restricted growth, Cerebral Palsy, visual impairment, hearing impairment
•If you have been unable to take part regularly in physical activity or sport for a while
•If you are over the age of 18

How to get involved

Get in touch with Get Yourself Active if you are interested in taking part in their research and give them your name and the best way for the researcher to contact you. They will then arrange a time for you to take part in the researcher from your own home. Once your bit is done you will receive your £15 Amazon voucher. You may also randomly be selected to receive £100 Amazon Voucher!

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
