Disabled Football

We are proud to announce that we have now worked in Partnership with YARS in establishing the clubs very first competitive disabled football team who will be representing AFC Knowsley in the Liverpool FAs disabled league.

About YARS (Young Adult Respite Service)

The aim of the project (YARS) is to offer a service in the community and group residential breaks to Merseyside young disabled adults (aged 18 – 35, however may work with 17 year olds in transition). They wanted to have a service that is specific for young disabled adults, a group usually caught in-between children and adult services.

The organisation was set up as we used to run disability projects in Knowsley for disabled children and young people. Parents asked if we would set up a service that worked with their children when they became adults.
