Tackling Inequalities fund helps keep people with slight loss active during lockdown
This collection of short films features disabled people from Northamptonshire who are already physically active and enjoy the benefits of doing so. The aim of these films is to help inspire other disabled people from around the county and country to get active by seeing other people like them already doing so.
Better with Friends provides opportunities for disabled people to become more physically active by matching them with volunteer befriender who will attend a sports club or physical activity session with them. The benefits of the project are far wider though with the impact it has on participant’s social and mental well-being by introducing them to groups and providing them with a supportive role model.
