Publisher:

Publication year:

Pagination:
61p.,bibliog.
Place of publication:
York

This report tries to identify the barriers faced by young disabled people from discussions between young people and service providers. It highlights the social imperative for leisure to be accessible to all. Recommendations and advice are provided for those wishing to replicate such a consultation exercise. Young disabled people are commonly excluded from mainstream leisure services and activities. This report reviews young disabled people’s experience of leisure provision and access, and how leisure providers can work with them to develop more inclusive facilities. The study reports on a project in which young disabled people and service providers came together to discuss the young people’s needs and requirements for leisure, and how these discussions developed. Scattered with quotes from the young people themselves, the report identifies the barriers young people face, including isolation, lack of money and transport, inaccessible buildings and unhelpful attitudes. It reports the young people’s own attitudes to their situation, and their aims and aspirations for the future. It makes a clear case for why leisure should be accessible to all as well as giving many good practice suggestions.
