It has always been important for people with disabilities to be able to access physical activity and be supported in this. Now more then ever, we need to have creative ways for everyone to be able to keep active while having to stay at home. Here are some ideas for Adapted Activities that can be done at home.
STEP inclusion resources to support activity while at home
Looking for ways to be more active during this time? The STEP Tool is an effective way to adapt activities for children and adults. Use items around the home and get the household to join in. Find out more about adapting activities at www.activityalliance.org.uk/step
While we are distancing from others, many of us are finding new ways to enjoy being active in or near our home. Activity Alliance has released new graphics on adapting activities so everyone in the household, disabled and non-disabled, can take part together.
