Talent Pathway

Providing the support you need

Disability Talent Development

The FA support a number of international football teams for players with a disability.  The Great Britain Cerebral Palsy and Blind Football teams compete at Paralympic Level, and there are International Competitions for the England Partially Sighted, Learning Disability, Power Chair, Amputee, and Deaf teams.

For young players there are a number of opportunities at a local and regional level, to help develop skills and provide an opportunity to progress. These include:

- Devon Disability Player Development Centre
- South West Partially Sighted Centre of Excellence
- South West Deaf Centre of Excellence
- South West Cerebral Palsy Centre of Excellence


In March 2018, we’re running an England Talent Day for all impairment groups which is free of charge and open to all ages between 11 – 16 years. This is an open event for males and females with opportunities to join local inclusive Football clubs and potentially a 6 week Talent Programme.

Online booking can be found in the below website link and player registration forms can be found attached to the bottom of this page, as downloads.
