The infographic was co-produced with disabled children, disabled young people, parents and carers.
Getting and staying active is about:
For good health benefits, do 20 minutes of physical activity per day.
When starting, build up slowly. Ask: can you do this today?
Do bitesize chunks of physical activity throughout the day.
Do challenging but manageable strength and balance activities 3 times per week.
Small amounts of physical activity are good for you as well.
Don’t include personal or financial information like your National Insurance number or credit card details.
