Embedding Co-production in the sports sector

Reading Level: Medium
Reading Time: 1 minutes

The Get Yourself Active team has been working to influence the sport sector to be better equipped to involve Disabled people in the design, development and delivery of physical activity.

As part of this work, we have been developing and testing co-production workshops alongside Disabled People’s User Led Organisations to embed co-production in practice. We plan to educate the sport sector about the principles, values, and processes behind co-production through this work. This creates more opportunities for Disabled people to have a say in how physical activity is provided.

We also know there is still a lack of understanding of the importance of co-production in the sport and physical activity sector. We aim to work together with other organisations to develop a shared narrative around how we talk about co-production. This will include developing resources that sport organisations can use to support them to embed co-production in practice.
