Bringing the plan to life

Officially formed in January 2015, CP Football became an independent sport after 37 years under the ‘Cerebral Palsy Sport and Recreation Association’ (CPISRA). Ever since we have been developing our sport to offer all members of the CP Football family a platform to fall in love with the game. Laying the foundations to grow participation, IFCPF have a range of programmes and initiatives focused on developing specific areas of the game and providing support to our membership.

We aim to bring this plan to life by further exploring:

  • Our Programmes
  • Management and Delivery
  • Guiding Behaviours
  • Measuring and Reporting
  • Sustainability
