British Ice Skating is joining Activity Alliance in calling time on negative perceptions about disability, inclusion, and sport, and ask – Who says?
For far too long disabled people have faced misconceptions and presumptions on what is and isn’t possible, including in sport. Activity Alliance wants to move conversations on, open people’s minds and shift out-dated views on disability.
Who says? empowers people, on and off the field of play, to challenge their own and others’ perceptions.
First launched in summer 2019, phase one of the campaign gave people the positive stories, resources, and guidance to replace negativity. Now, three years on, Who says? is back!
Who says? phase two focuses on changing attitudes towards disabled children and young people in sport and activity. Four new campaign films explore some of the negative perceptions that can impact a disabled child’s opportunities to be active. Each film provides upbeat insight from a mixture of disabled and non-disabled children and adults.
BIS would encourage everyone to take some time to head to the Activity Alliance website where you can find campaign films, information on how you can call time on negative perceptions about disability, inclusion, and sport.
