Survey aims to improve deaf and blind people's access to sport

UK Deaf Sport and British Blind Sport are joining forces to improve accessibility to leisure centres across the country. 

The two organisations have jointly produced a survey to enable them to better understand people with hearing and/or visual impairments and their use of centres. 

The research comes as a result of the need for leisure centre providers to make reasonable changes so that people with a visual and/or hearing impairment can access their services more easily. 

The survey's findings will lead to UK Deaf Sport and British Blind Sport making recommendations on how leisure centres can engage with deaf, blind and visually impaired members of the community to gain greater understanding of the services and support currently on offer to them – as well as individual wants and need that will inform future service provision and delivery.
