The Scotland National CP Team is made up of players from across Scotland with Cerebral Palsy, Stroke or Aquired Brain Injury.
Founded in 1995 in partnership with Scottish Disability Sport, the team has competed across the world in many competitions. Over the last 8 years we have competed with the top 16 elite teams, with our highest ranking of 6th in the world – this is higher than any Scotland national football team.
Unfortunately due to the current economic climate our funding is no longer available. This means that our players are unable to continue to compete on an international stage and without your help this team will no longer exist. Not only will our players lose their team, they will lose their pride, sense of belonging and their ability to reach their full potential.
This current group of players travel from across Scotland and the UK to attend regular training sessions, they sacrifice work, holidays, time with their family and friends to represent their country in the hope that we will compete in 2018.
To achieve this we want local businesses, sponsors, supporters, family and friends to come together during this crowdfunding period to play a part in something very special for the team and everyone involved.
Thanks for taking the time to read our story. Any donation, no matter how big or small, is much appreciated. We cannot do this without your support!
