A Word From the Director

Hello and thank you for having a look at the campaign. In 2012 I (Peter Harding) had a brain injury. Before I had played football from the age of 4 and made it to a high level by playing for Fulhams Development Centre. After my brain injury I had to learn everything again and I realised that I couldn't play football anymore. In 2012 the Paralympics also happened and I saw disability football for the first time.
At this point I realised that disability sports weren't getting the recognition they deserve. As a result I created Why Can't We. We are now setting up disability teams and events as well as using social media to raise tthe awareness. Please use #wcw and get involved in promoting disability sport so everyone knows about it.
Our History
How it started
Our Goals
We feel since the Paralympics in London, recognition of disability sport has not been recognized. After setting up a Facebook Page we are trying to progress with the campaign.
Since discovering the world of disability sport, it has become our project to make disability sport globally recognised. The aim for 2017 is to set up 50 disabled football teams around the UK
In 2012 the director (Peter Harding) had a brain injury. He discovered disability football later that year with the Paralympics. However, after the event finished the recognition of disability sport went with it. Later, in 2014 Why Can't We was developed.
  1. True Fact
    There are over 11 million people with a limiting long-term illness, impairment or disability in the UK alone. https://www.gov.uk
  2. Help Change This
    Active People Survey released on 10 December 2015 show that 1.58 million people aged 16 years and over with a long term limiting illness or disability (17.2%) played sport once a week. https://www.sportengland.org
  3. Thank You Paralympics 2012
    The Paralympics have made more than half of people abroad think more positively about how the UK views disability (56%). http://www.sportandrecreation.org.uk
