To see all the disability sport sessions currently provided please see the list at the bottom of this page.
Cambridge United does an excellent job of providing opportunities for thousands of young people to play sport every week. However, there are some groups that require a little more expertise; this is where our Community Trust is so important. One of these groups are those with disabilities. Cambridge United Community Trust has run football sessions for those with cerebral palsy and Down's syndrome for over a year, but we recognise that this is scratching the surface, and that there is a lot more to be done.
We also deliver football sessions to classes in special schools around Cambridgeshire, which is a natural offshoot of our School Sport programme. These are all significant steps towards our goal of being able to provide the opportunity to play sport to every person in Cambridgeshire, regardless of age, gender, ability or any other characteristic.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on any of these opportunities, or to explore how you or your company could help support our work, please contact Ben Szreter, CEO Cambridge United Community Trust at email@example.com
