The OSS in partnership with the University of West of Scotland and the Peter Harrison Foundation are currently looking for people with disabilities to be involved in our research aimed at understanding disability and sport in Scotland. This study aims to identify the factors that most influence the inclusivity of sport to people with disabilities of all levels of ability, no matter their impairment or their social or economic circumstances.


Who is eligible to take part?

We are seeking participation from all people aged between 12 and 70 with a disability living in Scotland. Consultation with our stakeholder group has sought to ensure the survey is accessible to all people and also includes the option to have the survey completed by proxy or with assistance for any individuals who may have literacy difficulties or are unable to make an informed decision whether to participate.

What to do if you are interested in being involved?
