Location

Situation

Football is probably the most popular sport in this country, enjoyed by young people at school, in community clubs, on the street and in parks every day. Regrettably, children with cerebral palsy do not have these same opportunities. A fundamental issue is that no adapted form of the game exists for children who require mobility aids for balance and movement to play and enjoy. These children are missing out on the health and wellbeing benefits of participating in this popular sport.

Solution

Through developing this new sport and creating new Frame Football playing opportunities, this project will directly address barriers to physical and social activities encountered by children and young people with cerebral palsy who rely in aids for mobility and balance. The project will create participation opportunities, increase awareness of the needs of young frame users and up-skill local community coaches in order to create a replicable model of good inclusive practice across the country.
