Football: Australia’s national Paralympic football team, the Pararoos, have received a major boost on their road to qualifying for the 2019 International Federation for Cerebral Palsy Football (IFCPF) World Cup with Zest Care signing on as the team’s inaugural major partner.

Zest Care, a government approved In-Home Child Care and Disability Support Provider, will provide funding and backing for the Pararoos until 2019.
