Sports Equipment Programme
Sports Equipment programme was launched
in partnership with The Edward Gostling Foundation.
Disabled children across the UK are desperate to participate in sports. Sadly, specialist sport equipment can cost up to 100 times more than its able-bodied equivalent. Adaptive equipment is a prerequisite for a number of sports including basketball, football, rugby, tennis, running and archery.
Thanks to funding support from The Edward Gostling Foundation (EGF), formed in 1994 to give people with a physical or mental disability the same quality of life opportunities as others, Caudwell Children will now be able to match fund specialist sports equipment, for aspiring athletes, for the next five years.
Over the next few years we will support many children with a range of disabilities and enable them to have the chance at participating in sporting activities.

The pleasure that disabled children get by taking part in sport is evident for all to see when you watch a game of powerchair football.
St George’s Knights Powerchair Football
St George’s Knights took on the Caudwell Crusaders in a charity organised match to promote wheelchair football.
The Knights drubbed the Crusaders 15-0 in a highly enjoyable encounter. Hear the coaches from both teams talk about the benefits of wheelchair football.
