Disabled people are known as ‘the world’s largest minority’. And it’s not by chance, the cost of living with a disability can increase household poverty, which means disability is not an issue limited to individuals. Exclusion and stigma, low incomes, and high costs of rehabilitation and care, all create a vicious circle that holds back not only individuals with impairments, but their families and children too.
Taking part in physical activity is important to all of us and for disabled people, an active lifestyle can significantly help improve their health and increase social interaction. The Jason Roberts Foundation’s disability programme is providing sporting opportunities for disabled people in Brent.
