The importance of physical activity

West Sussex County Council is committed to actively promoting the Five Ways to Wellbeing.

Not all disabled people eligible for social care support know that they can also use their Personal Budget to get (more) active or use the support planning process to talk through the benefits of physical activity as well as the options available locally.

This is why the role of social workers and brokerage teams is so important - you are key in helping to find creative ways to support disabled people with being active - during assessment, support planning, and review processes.

The guidelines and resources produced by Get Yourself Active help you in your role of supporting disabled people to live happy, healthy, and active lives.

You can download the guidelines and resources here.
