Reconditioning Funding for Learning Disability Day Service Providers

Reconditioning Funding for Learning Disability Day Service Providers

Somerset County Council is seeking to support a new piece of work to support the Covid-19 recovery programme in Somerset. The project seeks to support Learning Disability providers to engage and explore physical activity opportunities for service users.

During the pandemic, many service users were advised to shield to protect themselves, in addition to this many sports clubs and leisure centres were asked to close, this led to a decrease in physical activity opportunities for many over a sustained period.

Learning Disability providers have recognised the deconditioning of their service users over the past 18 months and are keen to engage them in more physical activity opportunities to support their health and wellbeing.
