What We Do

We are a leading provider of Disability Football in Yorkshire. We have eight sessions for both adults and children with disabilities and learning difficulties across Barnsley, Pontefract, Selby and Wakefield.

We run other services such as a weekly day-time sports activities day at Crofton Community Centre which gets adults with disabilities and learning difficulties active and provides respite for parents and carers.

We work with schools and we offer services such as breakfast clubs, lunchtime clubs and after school clubs along with PPA cover in mainstream and specialist settings.
