SaintsAbility

Supporting active and independent lives for disabled people in our community. SaintsAbility breaks down barriers – that is our mission on and off the football pitch. 

We deliver sessions in schools, in our community and on the training pitch to support footballers with all forms of impairments. Unlocking talent, realising potential. 

Our open access sessions deliver courses across the city giving them, through sport, time to socialise, lead more independent lives and live healthily. 

In schools we work in with Special Educational Need (SEN) pupils, providing them with the tools to thrive once they leave education. 


Saints Foundation has given me the confidence to be part of something bigger. It has given me an outlet to express my passion, which I wouldn’t have anywhere else.
