Disability Football

    •  
Cambridgeshire FA aims to ensure people with disabilities have opportunities to take part in football and progress through the disability player pathway.

Parability Football Project

The Cambridgeshire Football Association's 'ParAbility Football Project' has been supported with funding from the Big Lottery Fund and The FA's 3-year Disability Football Development Fund. The two separate funds have contributed to the development of disability football in the county by increasing participation opportunities as well as, providing continuous support to volunteers and clubs who support disabled people in football.
