Get Yourself Active launches evaluation report at end of Year 4 event

12 April 2019

On Monday 25th March Get Yourself Active hosted its end of Year 4 celebratory event and we released the key findings from its latest evaluation report.

The event saw two key note speeches from James Sanderson, Director of Personalised Care Group at NHS England and Mike Diaper OBE, Executive Director of Children and Young People, Tackling Inactivity at Sport England. This was followed by an informative panel discussion and talks led by Disability Rights UK staff members.

Evaluation Report of Get Yourself Active Released

The GYA report aimed to capture learning about ‘what worked’ and ‘why’ when it came to increasing the number of physical activity opportunities for disabled people. The report is broken down into three strands of engagement work: local coordinator; supporting social workers; and co-production so you can focus on what's most relevant for you.
