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.

  • 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
  • It’s great for the kids to have the opportunity to take part in sport. When I was a kid you would never have got anything like Panathlon. It’s only right that they get a crack at sport the same as any other kid. Sport is great for him.

    Jim Reid, grandfather of Robert Walter, joint winner of the 2014 WNST Primary-Aged Achievers Award
  • Panathlon is brilliant. I’ve been coming here since the age of nine and enjoy it every year. I take part in the wheelchair slalom and the relay races. I love racing against others.

    Jo Makumbi, aged 15, West Lea School, Enfield
  • Today allowed our children to shine in sport for the first time. Thank you for an amazing day. Long may we be involved

    Hollie Williams, teacher at Topcliffe Primary School, Birmingham
  • I had two boys who said they’d thought of every way of getting out of doing this, but they volunteered for every race. One swum 10 metres unaided! He didn’t – and we didn’t – know he could do it.

    Debbie Hancock, teacher at Reid Street Primary School, Darlington
  • Panathlon means everything to the kids. There’s nothing else for them where they can compete at sport, so it means the world to them. If it wasn’t for Panathlon they wouldn’t be competing.

    Janine Edwards, teaching assistant at Whitmore High School, Harrow
  • One of the things about working with kids with special needs is that many of them have exactly the same interests as non-disabled kids. They want to resent their school, they want to represent their borough. This gives them an opportunity to do that, which they wouldn’t normally get.

    Alan Walsh, the Learning Trust – Team Hackney
  • I really enjoy it. Win or lose, it’s all about taking part. I feel very proud to be representing my school.

    Ali Hussain, aged 15, Hammersmith & Fulham
  • On behalf of our children at Girlington Primary School for a fantastic Panathlon experience. The activities were well thought through, taking into consideration a variety of disabilities. Our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and memories were made. The whole event ran like clockwork which added to the enjoyment. We are already looking forward to next year.

    Amanda Simpson, a teacher at Girlington Primary, Bradford
  • 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
