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.

  • Panathlon helps with the kids’ independence and helps them socially, meeting other children from other schools and just giving them a bit of experience of life outside of school.

    Judy Wells, teaching assistant, Fairfax School, Birmingham
  • Panathlon is important to us. We run our own festivals and various SEN clubs, but this gives us a competitive outlet; something to work towards. It’s great for the kids.

    Steve Peaty, Newham team manager
  • Panathlon gives disabled children something which they can achieve for themselves. They all want to do Panathlon.

    Lorraine Veck, Special Needs Classroom Assistant, Coteford Junior School
  • One of our children said it was the first time he’d ever won anything in sport.

    Shirley Bond, PE coordinator at Stratton School, Gloucestershire
  • In terms of offer for disabled children, Panathlon is the strongest example of how to run an event that is exciting, enjoyable and challenging but brings wide benefits as well as the activity. It’s a model that’s needed throughout the country, there’s no doubt.

    Barry Horne, Chief Executive of the English Federation of Disability Sport
  • Prior to being involved in Panathlon, all we could do was what we did on site at school with our own kids. We weren’t involved in competition with other schools, so this is fantastic.

    Caroline Wells, Director of Doucecroft School Services, Colchester
  • Panathlon gives us all a break from our normal day-to-day lives and it’s really competitive, which a lot of disabled people don’t get. It’s really important that everyone gets the chance to play sport. It helps people let off steam. When they get frustrated or wound-up, it means they can relax. It’s really good.

    Sally McNeil, aged 16, Thurrock
  • Panathlon’s great. You can see children with all sorts of disabilities and abilities, so it’s very inclusive. Sport goes across so many different aspects of life that it’s just very important for them now and when they leave school.

    Mark Boorman, teacher at Drumbeat School, Lewisham
  • Win, lose or draw, it’s about giving kids opportunities to compete on an even scale against students of similar abilities. Everyone gets the chance to win a medal and you can just see their little eyes light up. It’s phenomenal really

    Kevin Hughes, Assistant Head of PE at Arbour Vale School, Slough
  • We’ve been to a few events in the past and she is usually the only student in a powerchair, so to come here today where she can compete against other students on a fair playing field is fantastic.

    Caroline Rose, mother of Ella, a Year Four student from Barnet
