CP Sport is the UK’s leading national disability sport organisation that supports children, teenagers and adults with cerebral palsy and other neurological and physical disabilities to reach their sporting potential. To do this, the charity relies on donations from the public in their aim to help all disabled people get involved with sport.

Their mission is to improve people’s quality of life through not only sport - physical activity and active recreation, and will act according to the charity’s respectful values:

  • Respect everyone they help and treat them with dignity

  • Treat everyone equally without prejudice and bias

  • Act as an inspiring role model for others

  • Act with integrity, honesty and sincerity at all times

Impact on disability sport

Football - Throughout the country, people with cerebral palsy find it hard to find enough teammates and resort to other sports which aren’t necessarily their preferred options. CP Sport has created excellent partnerships in several regions in England and Wales to allow people to play football. Anybody wanting to join a competitive grass-roots level league, find more information in their Football section of the website.

Athletics - CP Sport offers a range of opportunities for athletes looking to get into athletics. Anybody over the age of 11 is welcome, and there’s no upper age limit. Everyone can get involved with a range of disciplines. They work closely with England Athletics to ensure suitable equipment and good quality coaching is provided at mainstream clubs to help them understand what a CP athlete needs to get a good experience from their sport.
