CAFE is the official tournament charity of UEFA EURO 2012
About the charity project
The Centre for Access to Football in Europe (CAFE) is working with local disability partners in the host countries to promote improved access to football and the wider society and the removal of the physical, sensory, intellectual, psychological and attitudinal barriers that limit disabled people.
One of the main goals of the tournament charity is to raise funds during UEFA EURO 2012 and encourage donations from a wide range of benefactors, sponsors and individuals, which will enable CAFE and its local partners to continue to improve access and inclusion in the region in the future. This is the key legacy project for EURO 2012 which aims to raise the profile of disabled people in the region and their need for good access to enable them to lead independent and more fulfilling lives within their own communities.
CAFE is seeking sponsors and benefactors along with individual donations to help raise funds for this key EURO 2012 legacy project to promote awareness for future disability projects with local partners. The tournament charity is open to contributions that may include wide ranging donations and in-kind services in support of its on-going works.
