New film collection highlights ways to apply Ten Principles in activities to help get more disabled people active

Activity Alliance, supported by Sport England, has released five Ten Principles in action films. Following on from the first film released in June that introduced the Principles, viewers meet Shay, TP, Tony, Anthony and Hannah. The latest collection guides providers on how they too could apply the principles in their own activities to help include disabled people in them.

The five disabled people talk about how activity fits into their life and what it means to them to be active. Each film pinpoints two principles out of the ten to demonstrate how these work in action.

Barry Horne, Chief Executive for Activity Alliance said:

"Whilst many providers already offer opportunities for disabled people to take part, the high number of disabled people who are inactive remains a major cause for concern. Disabled people told us that, too often, they are unaware of opportunities available to them or said that what is offered is not appealing or accessible enough.

"These films provide a range of ideas on how we can all make opportunities attractive and inclusive. What's clear from our experience of applying the principles is that they can be adapted to all audiences but include some considerations which are particularly important to successfully engaging disabled people."

In October 2014, Activity Alliance (under its former name the English Federation of Disability Sport) released the Talk to Me report. This report outlines ten principles developed with disabled people that sports providers should follow to help make their activities more appealing.

The Ten Principles in action films are available on Activity Alliance's YouTube Channel. To watch Shay, TP, Tony, Anthony, Hannah and Tony's stories visit the playlist here.
