National Sport and Physical Activity Survey - UK deaf Sports

"UK Deaf Sport is committed to creating more opportunities for deaf and hard of hearing people to exercise and play sport. To do this we need your help; we want to know about your views, experiences and attitudes towards sport and physical activity

By taking part in this survey you are helping to shape the future of sport and physical activity for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

The information you provide is hugely important to us, as we want to ensure that deaf sport and physical activity are not marginalised or ignored. It will support future funding applications for deaf sport and 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 . Every response is important so please complete the survey by clicking here.
