Analysing Barriers to Disabled Participation: A Behaviour Change Model Essay


This assignment is intended to assess the following learning outcomes:

1.Analyse the range of factors that can influence the experience of sport/physical education provision by disabled people

2.Evaluate a range of methods in increasing the involvement of disabled people in sport/physical education

Details of the task

In its latest strategy, Towards An Active Nation, Sport England (2016) identifies tackling inactivity as a key area of its work ‘because this is where the gains for the individual and for society are greatest’ (p. 6). Sport England also recognises the value of adopting the ‘Behaviour Change Model’ (Prochaska and DiClemente, 1983) as a basis for developing approaches to reducing inactivity.

Disabled people are very much part of the ‘target audience’ for reducing inactivity as a great deal of research (including Active Lives Survey, Sport England, 2019) shows significantly higher levels of inactivity amongst disabled people compared to their non-disabled peers. Much of this targeted action to reduce inactivity amongst disabled people needs to take place at a local level.


Using the Behaviour Change Model as your structure, produce a report which does the following;

1.Identifies and analyses the key barriers (i.e. provides an evidence base for why these are the key barriers) faced by disabled people at each of the stages of the Model.

2.Reviews and justifies the most effective actions to reduce and/or remove these barriers at a local level.


·You must ensure that your discussion of different barriers to participation is clearly placed in the context of existing research and reports. At each level you should only look to analyse 1/2 barriers at most to allow any depth for your work. Please note it is accepted that certain barriers do occur at different levels but potentially have a different effect/action required.

·The major focus of your report should be the evidence that supports and justifies how you would break these barriers down with a view to reducing inactivity and increasing positive attitudes to being active amongst disabled people generally.

·When looking at the issues related to reducing/removing barriers you should ensure that your discussion is rooted in evidence drawn from reports, research and other evidence from past programmes, etc.

·When thinking of potential actions ensure that you consider how the local environment of an area (e.g. rural v urban, levels of socio-economic deprivation, etc.) could affect the impact.

·To achieve an average grade you should be making use of an absolute minimum of 14 academically referenced sources, with particular emphasis on reports and journals (NOT BASIC ORGANISATIONAL WEB-SITES).

·See the Grading Criteria sheet below for more guidance on areas you should focus on in your work.
