1. Introduction

5% of survey complete.

This questionnaire is part of a research study being conducted by the University of Technology Sydney for the Australian Sports Commission on sport and active recreation of people with disabilities.

Your participation in this study is highly valued whether you are a regular participant or a non-participant in sport and active recreation. We are as interested in the reasons for non participation and the constraints to participation that people with disabilities face.

The questionnaire will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. For people using screen magnification software the questionnaire may take 40-45 minutes.

Once the questionnaire has been started, it can not be saved and restarted. It needs to be completed in one session. This has been done to protect your privacy.
