Australian research - Sport and Active Recreation: Disability Participation & Non Participation Study

From the University of Technology Sydney:

Australians love sport and active recreation but research has shown that people with disabilities participate less than the rest of the community.

We would like to know whether or not you participate in sport and active recreation and the reasons for your participation. The findings will be used to review current approaches to sport and recreation and to improve access provisions.

To be part of a research study being conducted by the University of Technology Sydney for the Australian Sports Commission on the sport and active recreation of people with disabilities click on the link below:

Your participation in this study is highly valued whether you are participant or not. We are as interested in the reasons for non participation and the constraints to participation that people with disabilities face.

Those fully completing the questionnaire have the opportunity to go into a guessing competition to win 1 of 5 $600 vouchers for Inclusive Sport & Recreation Equipment. For further information on the equipment available, please visit

If you require an alternative format (large print, E-text, Easy English) or would like to complete this questionnaire by phone or want further information, please contact the project manager: Ryan Sherry on (02) 9514 5101 or by email

All responses are anonymous and confidential. The project has been approved by the UTS Human Research Ethics Committee (Ref No. 2009-242P) and any ethical issues arising from the research can be discussed with the UTS Research Ethics Manager, Ms Susanna Gorman, on Ph: 02 9514-1279.
