      • The Disability Discrimination Act 2000 has made a huge difference as it requires all leisure facilities to provide access for all including, ramps, lifts, low level counters, special toilets, hearing loops and trained staff to assist

        • Groups on lowest incomes tend to not spend money on leisure
    • Poverty
      • Poverty is defined as earning 60% or less of the average median income level in the UK
      • •In 2007/08, 13½ million people in the UK were living in households below the 60% low-income threshold after deducting housing costs.  This is around a fifth (22%) of the population

    • Choice
      • •In remote rural areas or run down inner cities, we may find fewer facilities available, poor public transport to get here, and less information and publicity on what is happening.
    • Lifestyle and Aspirations
      • •We may lack the aspiration or motivation to participate as we may have a poor self image or low self esteem
      • Work/life balance has become a common phrase 
      • •Chaps apparently enjoy an extra 32 minutes in which they can watch television, mix with friends, play sport or pursue hobbies, according to international research. 
    • Equity and Diversity
