Abstract

Leisure is a key area in paving the way towards full community inclusion and participation. It becomes more significant for disabled young people when barriers to full participation in education and employment result in them having more time for leisure pursuits whilst simultaneously experiencing greater difficulty in accessing leisure services, activities, and pastimes. This research project was funded by Childrens’ Services of City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council (BMDC) under the Aiming High for Disabled Children Agenda. This was an action research proposal to improve access to play, sport and leisure provision for disabled children and young people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities in Bradford. The study adopted a participatory model, involving disabled young
people as researchers and facilitators. A principle objective of this research was to support the development of good practice models.
