Richmond upon Thames Inclusive Sport and Exercise 2022 - Individuals

Closes 16 Jan 2023

Opened 18 Oct 2022

Overview

We are seeking your views on Sport, Exercise and Physical Activities.

The Sports Development Team developed RISE (Richmond upon Thames Inclusive Sport and Exercise) in 2008. RISE aims to highlight the wide range of inclusive and disability-specific sports available in the borough. There are a variety of regular activities and events run under the RISE banner. To find out what RISE activities and events are available please visit the website www.richmond.gov.uk/RISE. There are also other inclusive and disability specific activities that run regularly locally, details of many of these can also be found on the website.

The Sports Development Team are consulting with adults, young people and parents and carers of children with disabilities in the borough to find out about their participation in sporting activities. We are carrying out the research to find out what activities people are currently participating in, what they would like to participate in and associated information in order to update the forward plan which will help inform the future of inclusive and disability sports and physical activity.

After our consultations in 2008 and 2013 we responded to points that came out of the survey to develop inclusive and disability activities in the borough. We ran another consultation at the end of 2019 but were unable to develop new activities due to the restrictions around COVID-19 that came in early 2020. The pandemic has had a big impact on all aspects of life including physical activity. We are aware that the impact is still felt widely and we need to ensure that our delivery of activities reflects this and continues to meet demand of local residents.

We are keen to evolve our plan and delivery, led by demand and feedback from individuals and groups to make sure that the activities developed and offered are meeting the demand.

The consultation is anonymous, however we do ask for the first section of your postcode in order to find out more about the activity levels across the borough.

We would like to thank you for your views and time taken to complete this consultation document.

The outcome of this research will be published early 2023 on the Sports Development website.

For more details or to access the consultation in a different format, please contact Lizzy Roberts, Sports Development Officer email lizzy.roberts@richmond.gov.uk or telephone 020 8831 6134
