For children with disabilities sport and play are especially important – not only in terms of their health, but also in terms of their social contact with others. Children with disabilities learn what they can do through sport; they discover their talents and develop self-confidence. Unfortunately, it is not always easy for these children to participate in a sport, because there are few facilities and the equipment required is generally expensive.Through a variety of partnerships, we are working to increase the sports available to children with disabilities and to make these sports more accessible so children with a disability also get the space to discover their talents.
In terms of recreational sports, we provide sports facilities and sports motivation through financial and strategic support. The Cruyff Foundation then offers talented children the chance to continue their development through the partnerships with sports associations.
