On Friday 26th April, Harborne Charity Cerebral Palsy Midlands took a group of adults from Cerebral Palsy Midlands to Sutton Accessible Community Games at BMET College in Sutton Coldfield. 
We had four in our group with cerebral palsy. As well as having cerebral palsy, we had one citizen with sight loss, one with autism and one other citizen with mild learning difficulties. One of our team was also a wheelchair user. Despite their disabilities, all our team found that they had incredible abilities! They could play basketball, football, climb and aim for a target. We all had a brilliant day and got really stuck in to all the games that were available. 
 
We experienced Wheelchair Football with the ‘Villa Rockets FC’, Wheelchair Basketball, Gymnastics, archery, the climbing wall, Cycling with ‘Park Ride’, Rugby, Table Tennis and more. 
 
Our CPM sports team left with having achieved a medal each with a new hat and felt really proud. It really was exhilarating, we were so pleased with how disabled friendly the games were and how friendly, helpful and supportive everyone was on the day. Here are some comments; 
 
James; “I liked riding the bikes and I liked having a go on the climbing wall. I told my mom all about it when I got home and showed her my medal.” 
Karl; “I liked it, I had a fantastic day, I enjoyed going out for the day and going on the bikes.” 
Amy; “I had a really good day out; I like the archery and Rugby and would definitely go again.” 
Care Assistant. “It was really good and really well thought out, all the people at the activities were so helpful and would adapt the sport in any way to ensure everyone could take part. We must go again.”

For many years Cerebral Palsy Midlands hads worked with National Citizen Service and The Challenge Birmingham to give young people experiences working in the charity sector and working with young adults with disability. 
This summer we are set to take in another 80 to 100 young people aged between 15 and 17 into our centre, to help them develop their skills for work, life and transition into adulthood.  
Groups come supporting different talents from drama, music, art, film, sports and media. Todays 'Enterprise' group came with a cake decorating activity that would create an opportunity to work with and communicate with our clients. We believe that these opportunities to come into our centre really do help young people develop their confidence, develop their social interaction and understanding and hopefully give them an opportunity to develop and strengthen their skills for the future.
