CP Sport and Quest 88 partnership results in new pilot equipment rental service
Cerebral Palsy Sport (CP Sport) and Quest 88 have launched a new equipment rental service to support people with cerebral palsy and associated impairments to participate in sport and recreational activity.
The service will see a range of frames available, including GameFrames which are used in Frame Football, as well as RaceRunning frames.
Quest 88, a designer and manufacturer of mobility aids and equipment for over three decades, will supply the equipment.
Tom Henshaw, Commercial Manager at Quest, said: “With access to all-important club activities and events now being severely limited due to COVID-19, we’ve been actively searching for new and innovative ways to support the continued rehabilitation and supported activity that CP Sport embodies.
“The rental service is a safe way for children and adults alike to explore their potential for movement, at their own pace, in their own home, but fully supported by both Quest and CP Sport.”
According to CP Sport, adapted sports are enjoying a rise in popularity, with more Frame Football and RaceRunning clubs springing up across the country. In particular, RaceRunning has seen a big increase in interest since being included on the World Para Athletics programme in 2018, says the national disability sports charity.
Adi Fawcett, CP Sport Chief Operating Officer, said: “This is an exciting pilot programme for us at CP Sport and an opportunity for us to learn how we can develop our services and activities for the benefit of our beneficiaries.
“The service will enable us to take sport to our community and overcome the barrier of access to equipment for individual and provide support through one to one coaching sessions. Our aspiration during this challenging time is to enable as many people as possible to get moving, be active and have some fun being physical.”
It comes as part of CP Sport’s efforts with the Football Association and partners to support the future developments of Frame Football, which is also seeing an increase in uptake with a number of affiliated clubs running sessions.
Individuals using the service will be able to hire a frame for a minimum of three months, with Quest 88 arranging delivery of each frame, as well as assisting with set up and providing practical advice
In addition, accessories will be provided as well as a one-to-one coaching session, confirmed CP Sport.https://thiis.co.uk/cp-sport-and-quest-88-partnership-results-in-new-pilot-equipment-rental-service/https://thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/CP-Sport-Frame-Football-credit-CP-Sport.jpghttps://thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/CP-Sport-Frame-Football-credit-CP-Sport-150x150.jpgNewsroomSector NewsSupplier NewsThird SectorTrade NewsCerebral Palsy Sport,collaboration,CP Sport,Football; Association,Frame Football,frames.
