Governing Bodies

At Cerebral Palsy Sport we work very closely with a number of National Governing Bodies. 

As a Governing Body, British Athletics is wholly responsible for developing and implementing the rules and regulations of the sport, including everything from anti-doping, health and safety, facilities and welfare, to training and education for coaches and officials and permitting and licensing.
