Powerchair Football in Edinburgh and the Lothian Region

Powerchair Football in Edinburgh and the Lothian Region

Powerchair Football in Scotland has grown rapidly since 2012 with a number of clubs being created and offering opportunities for Powerchair participants to compete in sport and meet their peers in a fun environment. At this current time there is no Powerchair provision in Edinburgh or surrounding local authorities with the closest opportunity being Dundee.

We have already identified some potential participants across Edinburgh’s schools but we are looking to consult with as wide a group of potential participants as possible and therefore at this stage we are just asking parents/carers and children and young people to let us know if they like to take up this opportunity to gauge if there is sufficient interest.  The opportunity will be open to individuals from Edinburgh and the Lothian region so if you are interested in hearing more about getting involved then please get in touch.

We have consulted with already established clubs across Scotland to assess the benefits for the players who currently take part in Powerchair Football and players have fed back the many positives of participation in the sport:

  • Feeling part of a team
  • Improved wheelchair skills which are transferable and benefit everyday life
  • Making new friends
  • Improved confidence
