2015 EiDA Nominee – English Federation of Disability Sport

The English Federation of Disability Sport exists to make active lives possible and ensure that millions of disabled people can lead active lifestyles. Dedicated to disabled people in sport and physical activity, EFDS supports a wide range of organisations to include disabled people more effectively. The national charity know through much of their research that many communications could be missing a large proportion of the population because they are not accessible or appealing enough to disabled people, so they work hard to support providers with more evidence, practical support and resources. In April 2014, EFDS produced a guide to inclusive communications. Written in partnership with Big Voice Communications, it supports providers to reach a wider audience. The excellent guide has proven to be extremely successful with over 1000 downloads to date and it was also chosen by Government to be a part of their National Accessible Britain Campaign, providing advice toolkits to organisations and individuals.
