There has never been a better time to get involved and play football, whatever your ability level. There are now more opportunities than ever to play football if you have a disability.
In our County we believe in flexible, inclusive and accessible playing opportunities for everyone, and are committed to delivering a range of opportunities for players with a disability to access football at various levels across the county.

All of CSF’s Aviva Ability Counts sessions are led by staff that are FA qualified, but also experienced and confident with people with all types of disabilities.
