The Sports Development team also deliver Everton in the Community’s Soccer Schools which give young people the chance to develop their skills and learn new techniques in a safe, fun environment at key venues across Merseyside and North Wales.

As well as managing the largest and most respected disability football programme in the world, the Club’s official charity delivers a number of multi-sport programmes across Merseyside with a view to helping every individual who is under the guidance of Everton in the Community achieve their full potential.

The disability programme provides football and physical activity opportunities for thousands of disabled children and adults each year. The programme is all-inclusive and there are teams available to those with any disability whether that be learning, physical, reduced stature, autism, cerebral palsy, deaf or partially-sighted.

The programme supports disabled people into education, training, employment, volunteering and social opportunities, whilst tackling negative stigma in society and challenging the huge inequalities that still exist.
