INFAD Association as an integral partner of the B-SPORT + project has started in 2020 to carry out joint actions with the rest of European partners to involve and activate and help People with Disabilities through a Lifelong Sporting System starting at early age and continuing in their active life (workplace, elderly, etc.)
The project, lasting 3 years, is addressed at people with disabilities and all those who work with them. B-SPORT+ tackles the need of better equip facilitators and create collaborative mechanisms across institutions and bodies, seeking to eliminate inequalities between people with disabilities and people without them in the practice of sports and physical activity.
BSPORT+ seeks the promotion of an active participation of people with disabilities in physical/sport activities and their adoption of healthier lifestyles through:
- Creating a solid knowledge basis and generate evidence on the attitudes, motivations, barriers and habits of people with disabilities, to support the action
- Generating a comprehensive provision on all existing assistive sport technology solutions suitable for people with disabilities
- Producing a need-oriented capacity building programme tailored-made to professionals working with people with disabilities
- Design a policy framework and establish pre-conditions to public innovations and professional initiatives towards the activation of people with disabilities
