Activity Alliance

News from Activity Alliance

Activity Alliance has a clear ambition, they state “It is not right or fair that disabled people are the least active in our society”

They are pleased to present their 2021-2024 strategy - Achieving Fairness. Having consulted with their members and partners to inform our strategy’s development and future direction.

One in five people in the UK considers themselves a disabled person – 14.1 million people. This represents a large proportion of our population. Sport and activity play an important role in our nation’s health so must be a level playing field for everybody. Therefore, Activity Alliance have refreshed their vision to be: 

Fairness for disabled people in sport and activity
Disabled people participate less than non-disabled people and they are also twice as likely to be inactive. We call this the fairness gap, and we aim to close this gap within a generation by focussing on these two key goals:

  1. Embedding inclusive practice into organisations
  2. Changing attitudes towards disabled people in sport and activity

The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted our country and hit disabled people the hardest in many ways. Our Strategy acknowledges this situation and recognises the work in hand to overcome the extra challenges brought by the pandemic. We want disabled people to be at the heart of our nation’s recovery.

Our three-year strategy is ambitious. To achieve fairness we will work with multiple stakeholders who will unite with us to make our vision a reality. This includes an important mix of organisations and individuals across various sectors. We will also work closely with our members to prioritise disabled people’s inclusion in sport and activity. 

Everything we do will focus on these four strategic objectives: 

  1. Champion disabled people’s voices and maximise Activity Alliance’s visibility
  2. Use high-quality expertise and insight to educate and inform decision making and influence policy
  3. Address inequalities through collaboration, improving engagement and delivery with and for disabled people
  4. Maximise the use of investment and that of our partners to enable disabled people’s activity

Over the next three years and beyond, Activity Alliance will continue to push for inclusion to be at the heart of all plans in sport and activity.

We will not settle until every disabled person can reap the same physical health, mental health, and social benefits as non-disabled people.

Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin STP

Learning Disability and Autism Programme

The Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Learning Disability and Autism Programme is developing its overarching vision and principles. This is important as it provides focus, sets direction and unites everybody with where we want to get to as a local health and care system. It also sets out what Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin Integrated Care System want to achieve for and with people living with a learning disability and/ or autism.

This vision aims to align our work across health and social care in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin. Once developed it will provide a foundation for detailed strategies and plans where these are not yet in place or need to be updated.

How has this been developed so far?

The draft vision has been developed using:

  • feedback provided to recent strategy work for both learning disabilities and autism, for adults and children, and across health and social care in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin
  • further feedback gathered directly from people with lived experience, families, carers and professionals.

Have your say

Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin Integrated Care System would like to hear your views and feedback on the draft vision and principles to make sure the right information has been captured.

To have your say, please read the draft vision on page 4 and the easy read version from page 5 in the document below and complete our short survey by clicking on the following link: survey

Learning Disability and Autism Programme Draft Vision
