As part our aims to promote the importance of learning to swim to people of all ages and abilities, STA is delighted to announce a new partnership with Cerebral Palsy Sport (CP Sport)—the country’s leading national disability sports charity supporting people with cerebral palsy to reach their sporting potential.
Over the coming months STA and CP Sport will share expertise and knowledge, and will work together to create more opportunities in disability swimming for learners with cerebral palsy.
