Celtic FC – Inspiring Sport

Over the last three years, Celtic FC Foundation and Scottish Disability Sport have worked in partnership to establish the Inspiring Sport project, aimed at engaging people with disabilities across Scotland in physical activity.

The project includes weekly activity sessions, school sports events, Parasports Festivals and the annual residential Summer Sports Camp. Activities include boccia, wheelchair basketball, table tennis, swimming, cross country running, football and dance.

Through eight Scottish Disability Sport Branches, over 500 people have been supported to participate in their chosen activity due to the provision of specialist sports equipment and training for coaches and volunteers.
