Representatives from APCP also sit on development groups for a range of CP Sports adapted sports ensuring that best practice, advice and guidance is available from the very early stages of each of the sports development.
This partnership is going from strength to strength and moving forward the partnership want to support more people with physical disabilities become active, engaging in sport and physical activity that that will support the therapy they are receiving.
