NEW from the 27 April - STEP inclusion resources to support activity while at home
Activity Alliance is sharing the top ways to adapt activities so more people can stay in and work out. The STEP tool is one of the most effective ways to use household items to be active. STEP stands for Space, Task, Equipment and People.
While we are distancing from others, many people are finding new ways to enjoy being active in or near home. We are mindful of disabled people in our communities and your organisation’s membership, who may feel more isolated or less active during this time.
There are many ways to continue enjoying an active lifestyle. This includes adapting activities so everyone in the household, disabled and non-disabled, can take part together. With a few simple tweaks, activities can quickly become a part of everyone’s daily routine.
On Monday 27 April, Activity Alliance is releasing six new STEP graphics. Ideal for disabled people, organisations and providers, they show how you can apply the STEP tool to your sports and activities.
The additional tips support everyone to adapt the space, task, equipment and people for activity at home.
