17 year old Cameron Osburn’s daily struggle with Cerebral Palsy and his own experience of mainstream football has driven him to set up Adversity United - an inclusive football club where children are supported, encouraged, praised and guided. The club is for children aged 6 - 12 years who are living with physical, behavioural, social and cerebral challenges. Cameron focusses on the children's enjoyment irrespective of their disability. The relationships he is forming are open and honest - with both the children and their families. Cameron through Adversity United is offering an opportunity for children with a range of disabilities to come together to play a team sport that they often don't often get the opportunity to play.
Cameron recently won the David Lloyd Stray FM Local Hero Award in recognition for his hard work and commitment.
