Can you help me find a club?
If you can’t find a club listed on then it’s unlikely that
I will know about it. The next port of call for you would be to;
Look on the FA Club Finder tool
your County FA disability development officer who should be aware
of the clubs in his/her area.
on governing body websites such as;
and other disability specific websites
do I get involved in disability football?
A lot of clubs are crying out for volunteers and coaches.
Just contact a club listed on this site or even one of the imparement
specific national governing bodyies. The FA has also set up a volunteer
coordination programme to put volunteers in touch with clubs. Contact
you County FA for details
do I become qualified to coach disabled footballers?
Most county FA’s hold ‘Coaching Disabled Footballers’
courses through the year. The pre-requisite is that you should hold
the FA Level 1 certificate. This is a one day event and is aimed at
coached who are already coaching in ‘mainstream’ football,
but want to start coaching disabled footballers. If you are already
working with, or coaching disabled footballers, you've probably already
developed the skills that the course covers.

do I submit my team’s details?
Complete the form in the ‘Submit Team details’ section.
The form will come to me in email form and I’ll create a page
for your teams as soon as I can.
Alternatively, you can just send the details to me by normal email
do I change my teams details?
The easiest way is to just notify the changes by email
Alternatively you could complete the Submit Team Details form again
to show the changes
do I get a photo on my team’s page?
Send me the photo by email and I’ll put it on your page
submitted my details some time ago but they’re still not listed
on the site?
I try to update the site as often as possible and check for new submissions
every week or so.
If I have not added your team, it is probably due to my own club commitments
or work with Special Olympics and Mencap (or it could even be my proper
job). Just drop me an email to remind me and you’re sure to prod
me into action.
can I find ‘Audible’ footballs for blind or VI football?
This seems to be a problem for many coaches and teams. Although my background
is coaching footballers with a Learning Disability, I've contacted a
few people within VI football but drawn a blank.
Try contacting British Blind Sport or a football club which is specific
to VI or Blind football.

can you help me?
I regret that due to the large volume of this type of enquiry, I am
no longer able to answer these requests. I also feel that there are
far more suitably qualified people who would be better placed to help
