Healthy Living and Physical Activity Project - Home

The main aim of the project is to make community healthy living and physical activity groups and facilities more accessible to adults with autism, learning disabilities and severe mental illness.

We aim to achieve this by working with people with lived experience of these conditions, as well as representatives from community groups, in a process called co-production. . The voices and experiences of people with disabilities will be at the centre of our work.

We plan to work to understand the current barriers to involvement in community facilities and groups, both from the perspective of disabled people and that of people working within the community. We will use this knowledge to begin to develop training resources for local groups. This will enable us to support community groups to have the knowledge and skills to be able to make their services more accessible.

Our vision is for a Sheffield in which disabled people can access the same services and opportunities to improve their health and wellbeing as non-disabled people, and to ensure that community groups have the support they need to be able to confidently provide accessible services to all.

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 :)

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.
