Cardiff City FC Community Foundation is supporting the 2020 Level Playing Field Weeks of Action.

 

 

The annual initiative, now in its 16th year, aims to celebrate access and inclusion for sports fans with a disability across England and Wales.

 

 

Neil Harris will be presenting participants from the Foundation’s Bluebirds Ability (PAN Disability) squad, who are here today with Foundation t-shirts signed by the first team.

 

 

The young people - who attend weekly Friday evening sessions in Heath Park - recently met up with their Cardiff City heroes to pick up some training tips and advice before being invited to attend today’s game to receive their signed shirts.

 

 

The Foundation’s disability sessions use sport as a tool to encourage physical health and activity, social interaction and improve confidence.

 

 

These sessions are important as people with a disability experience health inequality and are twice as likely to be inactive than their non-disabled peers.

 

 

Cardiff City FC Community Foundation will continue to address inequalities of participation in sport and physical activity for people with a disability by providing access to community sport.

 

 

The Foundation was recognised for its inclusive offer in November of 2019, by receiving a Bronze InSport Ribbon by Disability Sport Wales.

 

 

This award recognises the Foundation as an organisation that provides inclusive opportunities for people with a disability.
