National disability sports charity Cerebral Palsy Sport and D M Orthotics are announcing the start of a new corporate charity partnership. D M Orthotics, who design and manufacture dynamic elastomeric fabric orthoses are helping to fund Cerebral Palsy Sport’s KickStart programme.
CP Sport’s KickStart programme aims to develop new areas of sustainable CP specific football all across the country. By working with County FAs, Football League Clubs and local charities and authorities, the programme encourages activity and developing playing opportunities for all. D M Orthotics will be actively getting involved in the programme by attending KickStart events around the country and will helping promote the work of CP Sport more widely to encourage even more children and young people to get involved.
Martin Matthews, Managing Director for D M Orthotics says; “We are delighted to be working in partnership with CP Sport. D M Orthotics’ ethos is about encouraging independence and we are an advocate for active lifestyles. In this respect CP Sport and their grass roots sports programmes for people with cerebral palsy is a perfect fit. We are really looking forward to getting involved with CP Sport’s events and helping to promote sports participation for people with CP around the country.”
Ali Talbot, Chief Executive of Cerebral Palsy Sport says; “It is fantastic to have the support of D M Orthotics. Our KickStart programme has already helped hundreds of children and young people to access fun, regular and appropriate CP specific sessions in their local area, and it is with the help of partnerships like this one with D M Orthotics that we hope to help many more.”
D M Orthotics are kicking off their partnership by speaking at Cerebral Palsy Sport’s Disability Sport Conference being held this week in Nottingham.
