9 December 2013

As part of the Active Healthy Living Grant from the Coca-Cola Foundation, the PHC have developed 5 disability-specific guides to help people understand how to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. Each guide has its own ambassador: Richard Whitehead (Amputee), Sascha Kindred (cerebral palsy), Andy Barrow (spinal cord impairment), Georgie Bullen (visual impairment), and Zoe Newson (les autres).

“Having an impairment can often limit peoples’ outlook, but through sport I’ve led a happier and healthier life and achieved more than I ever thought I could.” Georgie Bullen

Once you’ve found the right guide, you can decide which section is right for you. If you currently do little physical activity or exercise and want to learn or recap the basics, then choose the Fit for Life section. If you regularly take part in exercise or sport and want to improve your performance, then choose the Fit for Sport section.

If you would like a printed copy or if you have any questions about the resources please get in touch with T.S.Graham@lboro.ac.uk

The PHC team would also like to evaluate how the resources are being used. Please help them by providing your email address when you download a guide and they will be in touch in the near future to get your feedback.
