Opening the doors of football for every corner of society

THE Trust is committed to opening the doors of football for every corner of society, ensuring we provide access to the beautiful game for all players. As part of the Every Player Counts programme funded by Wembley National Stadium Trust, we provide courses and programmes for a wide range of disabilities. Through the project, we aim to improve accessibility, barriers to participation and provide fun, progressive and some competitive programmes for people with disabilities.

We have a number of teams competing in the Ability Counts League for footballers with PAN disabilities. The Trust is also working with a number of partners to increase mental health football, disability-specific teams, such as a deaf football club.
