Abstract

This review examines the evidence on how services can improve disabled children and young people's access to inclusive and positive activities and the impact this can have on their wellbeing. It also identifies the most promising directions for future research and development. Positive activities are defined as leisure-time activities outside of school hours and taking place in, or being delivered by, children's centres, extended services, youth services, school-based extra-curricular activities, play and leisure services, sports and recreation services, and the arts.
