Hello everyone, I'm looking for a club in London where they would have Frame Football or wheelchair sports for my son who is 13 and has cerebral palsy. Any recommendations would be great! thanks, Caroline

    Hi Caroline,   I will have a look later today for you and post any links I find.  Have you looked at the Activity Alliance Website at all.  They are the grassroots governing body for Disability sports in England (formally English Federation of disability Sports).

    Hi, I've found a few sports specific clubs, nothing specifically wheelchair or from Football, but the league clubs are getting better at community and disability sports, so I am sure there will be some out there. I've found some Basketball, there is Sparrows in Hackney and Titans Basketball run development sessions in Walthamstow.  Both these have good websites with info.  You can also get Tennis information from the Centre in Roehampton and there will be wheelchair Tennis out there somewhere fairly local i would hope.  I'm not sure what Borough you are in, but Boroughs Council sports development and local offer websites should link you with local disability sports clubs, I found a few that certainly seem to do this. I also found this link, which seems to list a range of disability sports clubs. https://www.ableize.com/disabled-groups-and-clubs-by-county/london-disabled-groups-and-clubs-by-county/disabled-sports-in-london/   I hope this help, if you need any more information post again and hopefully myself and others can point you in the right direction.
