Laureus releases new Disabilities impact research

To mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Laureus Sport for Good has released its latest research paper entitled 'Empowering Abilities through Sport'.
The research, produced in partnership with Allianz and InsightShare, aimed to gather deeper evidence of the impact that participation in Sport for Development programmes has on disabled young people.
Testament to our continuing commitment to innovation in evidence-based impact, the research also trialled a new evaluation methodology and involved three Laureus Sport for Good global partners working to deliver disability-focused sport for development programmes - DeafKidsInternational in Jamaica, Right to Play in Thailand, and The Cheshire Foundation in Ethiopia.
Social inclusion, including tackling the issue of disability, is one of 6 focus areas affecting young people around the world that Laureus Sport for Good aims to address through its work.
Our thanks go to all our Partners involving in the creation of this ground-breaking research.
