In February UK Deaf Sport launched their first National Sport and physical activity survey. The survey aims to find out the views, experiences and attitudes of people who are deaf and hard of hearing towards sport and physical activity
The survey is hugely important as it will be used to shape the future of Deaf sport and physical activity

The information provided will be used by over 20 sport national governing bodies and a wide range of leisure service providers like leisure centres and councils to provide the sort of activities people want to do.

The data will be used to support future funding applications for deaf sport to help provide more opportunities for  people who are deaf or hard of hearing to play, coach and volunteer in sport.

The survey is deaf friendly and there is also a BSL introduction

UK Deaf Sport Director of Development Lee Dolby says “ Please can we urge all people from the deaf community to complete the online survey, the data will be really important in ensuring that deaf sport and physical activity is not marginalised”
