The Sports Development Team developed RISE (Richmond upon Thames Inclusive Sport and Exercise) in 2008. RISE aims to highlight the wide range of inclusive and disability-specific sports available in the borough. There are a variety of regular activities and events run under the RISE banner. To find out what RISE activities and events are available please visit the website www.richmond.gov.uk/RISE. There are also other inclusive and disability specific activities that run regularly locally, details of many of these can also be found on the website. 

The Sports Development Team are consulting with adults, young people and parents and carers of children with disabilities in the borough to find out about their participation in sporting activities. We are carrying out the research to find out what activities people are currently participating in, what they would like to participate in and associated information in order to update the forward plan which will help inform the future of inclusive and disability sports.   

After our consultations in 2008 and 2013 we responded to points that came out of the survey to develop inclusive and disability activities in the borough. We are keen to evolve our plan and delivery, lead by demand and respond to feedback from individuals and groups to make sure that the activities developed and offered are meeting demand.

We would appreciate if you would be able to forward these details to members and those you work with so that we can get a good response to this survey and ensure that our future delivery can meet demand. If you would prefer paper copies of the consultation then please let me know, alternatively I am happy to speak to individuals or groups for feedback and discussion.

There are 3 versions of the consultation:

Adults: Adults Survey

Young people: Young People Survey

Parent/carers: Parent/Carer Survey

 

For more details or to access the consultation in a different format, please contact Lizzy Roberts, Sports Development Officer, by email: rise@richmond.gov.uk or telephone: 020 8831 6134

 

If you have any questions or would like any further information then please let me know.

 

Kind regards

 

Lizzy
