In the Realm of Others, a major exhibition by artists with profound intellectual impairment

Share your views on news articles featuring active disabled people

The English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS), supported by Sport England, is embarking on a new multi-stage research project. The aim is to improve public perceptions of disabled people in sport and activity by supporting the media, and those who interact with it, to use approaches which position disabled people more positively.

 

The first stage of the project is to understand more from both disabled and non-disabled people on their views of written news articles. We want to find out the types of news channels people use to read about sport or activity as well as preferences in language, tone and content.

To do this, EFDS has created a survey. In this survey, we ask a number of questions regarding the way active disabled people are portrayed in local and national news channels. Some questions involve looking through articles and clicking of words. We appreciate some people with certain impairments require another format or support to answer. If this occurs, please email or call Emma Spring (details below) to arrange a personal interview.

Please take part in the online survey here.

It will take no longer than 15 minutes to complete. We welcome everyone’s views in this survey.
