Developing inclusive leaders in Haringey
This research was conducted by Activity Alliance through their Get Out Get Active programme in partnership with Haringey Council. It looked at the key qualities and skills of deliverers and leaders in Haringey. The research explored how to create an inclusive environment for disabled participants and deliverers. It also looked to identify key ways to support more disabled people in the physical activity workforce.
The project was based in Haringey in London, however the findings are suitable to other areas. We reviewed previous research, conducted surveys with deliverers and participants, interviewed local leaders and deliverers, observed sessions in action, and held two coproduction workshops with deliverers, leaders, and disabled people.
Recommendations and outputs from the research were developed with disabled people, Haringey Council, and activity deliverers.
- will give organisations an understanding of how to encourage the development of inclusive environments for deliverers.
- identify the barriers that disabled people can face in accessing delivery opportunities and how to better support disabled people in to the sport and physical activity workforce.
- findings were explored with disabled people and deliverers in the co-production workshops, which built on suggestions and ideas from the interviews and surveys.
- we applied knowledge from the Active Communities Team, Activity Alliance, and GOGA colleagues to produce recommendations.
