Panathlon is a charity that provides sporting opportunities to over 13,000 disabled young people every year

 Over 800 schools across the country take part in ‘mini Paralympic’ multi-sport competitions for secondary or primary school children, along with dedicated football, boccia and swimming programmes. Panathlon has in the last few years trained thousands of young leaders (2,190 in 2017) aged 14-19, who act as sports officials for Panathlon competitions. If you are new to Panathlon, please take a look at the video (at the bottom of the page) to get a flavour of what we are all about.

  • We are so excited to have finally won a Panathlon event after so many years of trying! It’s great for this group to be able to take part. Now they have won, it only increases the importance of this new event for them.

    Cherie Lashmar, Head of PE Columbus College
  • “This is an experience that they don’t usually get at all. It’s great for them to be somewhere where they know Olympic and Paralympic athletes have competed and it gives them a huge sense of achievement.”

    Leanne Judd, SEN class teacher, Eastfield School
  • I’ve had the best day ever. I can’t wait to go home and tell my mum all about it and show her my medals.

    Pupil at Albert Pye Primary School, Beccles
  • Panathlon is great because it allows more children the chance to join in and compete. It’s an event that doesn’t focus on their disabilities, but on what they are able to do. It levels the playing field and the children are all enjoying themselves today. It’s fantastic.

    Dawn Catley, education engagement officer at Active Essex
  • At the end of a Panathlon event I feel like it’s a big achievement for me, because I can’t really do many sports. This is one I can do, and I love it!

    Thomas, 14, Brooksbank School
  • Panathlon makes it easier to set up targets and motivate my kids. During lessons, if you keep reminding them of Panathlon, we improve their behaviour and everything else improves from there.

    Maria Papazoglou, PE coordinator at Whitefield Schools, Waltham Forest
  • It’s been an amazing day and it’s an honour to be here in the Olympic swimming stadium. It’s my first time here and it’s been one of my dreams to come here. Not every kid gets the chance to do this.

    Alex Smyth, aged 14, Colchester
  • The Mayor and I are delighted to be supporting the Panathlon Final, the culmination of a year-long programme of fantastic sporting activity. The Panathlon Foundation do incredible work that benefits thousands of young disabled Londoners and their appearance at the Copper Box Arena in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a fitting finale to the year.

    Kate Hoey MP Commissioner for Sport
  • Some of the kids here today hardly take part in any sport at all, only boccia, so this gives them a great chance to get involved.

    Val Harnett, Enfield team manager and teacher at West Lea School
  • It is so good for the children to experience a 25m pool. It is great for the kids to get out of their comfort zone and see what can be done.

    Vicki Jones, Teacher, Lansbury Bridge
