The aim of this project is organize football sessions for persons with a physical disability or visual impairment.

– Be independently mobile with/without a mobility aid (wheelchair, prosthesis, walking frame, etc.)

These football sessions will be:
– FREE of charge
– Organized in a central location (venue will be confirmed at a later stage)
– Held every two weeks
– Catering for all the individual needs
– Fun, and encouraging participants to lead an active lifestyle
– Starting in mid-October 2015

Persons with a visual impairment and persons with a physical impairment might/might not participate together. This decision depends on the number of participants and their demands.
