To support social workers to have conversations with disabled people around getting active, ‘Get Yourself Active’ co-produced guidance with them. It encourages asset-based approaches to discussing the opportunities and outcomes brought about by physical activity.
The guidelines are also grounded in existing national data, past research on physical activity and recent social work literature around asset-based and person-centred approaches.
This information resource demonstrates how disabled people can become physically active through a personal budget, when supported by a social worker, and shares practical ways to promote physical activity and successful support planning.
