Young People with a disability and sport

E-mail Print

This children and young people survey was, in part, designed to replicate a survey carried out in 1999 with a random sample of young people aged between six and 16 years old and selected through the school system (Young people, a survey of leisure, sport and health). This in itself was a repeat of an earlier study carried out by the Office of Population Census and Surveys (OPCS – now ONS) in 1994. The replication of these school-based studies was designed to allow comparison between disabled young people and those without disabilities.

This report sets out selected headline findings from the survey of disabled children and young people and compares these with findings from Young people, a survey of leisure, sport, and health.
