Please find below details of Public Health England’s Physical Activity Team’s “Understanding the evidence” webinar . I believe this is of particular interest to academics interested in cycling and disability/ social justice / equality as the authors stated in the report:

“There is little specific evidence available on the benefits of walking and cycling for people with disabilities and those living with long-term conditions. Similarly, there is little about the effects on groups living with different levels of deprivation. It would be helpful if these gaps were addressed, particularly regarding practical methods to improve access to physical activity for these groups.”

Find the report here: Cycling and walking for individual, population and health system benefits: a rapid evidence review for health and care system decision-makers.

The webinar is an opportunity to hear from the researchers who will summarise the key findings, discuss next steps and how this evidence can be applied locally. Please email with any questions and click here for registration.
