Sensory Alliance Announces New Project in London to Support Older Deaf or Disabled People to be Active

What is it?

The Sensory Alliance has been awarded a grant from the Tackling Inequalities Fund to help older people with sensory disabilities like deafness to become more active.

Launching on the 9th November 2021, we’re offering free downloadable packs of activities for anyone deaf/disabled and aged 45 and older. This is open to anyone in living in London, the project will initially focus on the boroughs Barnet, Bromley, Bexley, and Croydon.

How to get involved?

To register for the project will receive an accessible, downloadable Activity Pack that contains sport and physical activity opportunities for you to enjoy on your own, with friends or family, in your home or in a local community space.

Share your story on social!

If you have used the activity pack or found a local activity via the Sensory Alliance website, we want to hear from you. Share photos and your story on social media and use #ActiveSensoryLDN.

In addition, the Sensory Alliance will provide training opportunities to assist local partners and organisations in becoming more confident in delivering inclusive activities to those who are Deaf or disabled.
