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 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
  • I’m shocked. I’ve never won anything before. I’m proud to do this with my mates. I am over the moon.

    Andrew Saxton, Bents Green, Sheffield
  • It’s the best event we’ve been to so far. It’s a brilliant atmosphere and a really good competition. If you’d seen where these kids have come from, it’s incredible, especially one of our boys, Alley. This time last year he was terrified of water and now he’s competed here. I’m really proud of him. The children are so proud of themselves, when they go back to school, there is such a big fuss made of them and their confidence is boosted so much by it.

    Sam Stevens, sports coach at Trinity School, Barking & Dagenham
  • Panathlon for us is about getting the children out in the community, engaging with other people from different schools, competing, working on leadership and teamwork, but mostly just having fun.

    Dan O’Brien, teacher at Woodfield School, Brent
  • It is the first time our kids have been able to compete at a sporting event; in the past they have only had the opportunity to watch.

    Rachel Attewell, teacher at Ockenden Academy, Essex
  • 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
  • Our strong team culture has impacted into school – behaviour has improved, relationships developed, a sense of achieving can be found in all areas of the school.

    Lucas Neocleous, football coach, Haringey
  • I feel proud to be here in this venue. It shows if you work really hard you can earn experiences and medals like this. Put your head down, don’t worry about anyone else, and just head for the gold!

    Kieran Rutter, aged 13, Great Arley
  • We’ve got children who are in powerchairs, who don’t have access to many other events, but here they’ve got a chance to compete on an even level with other children from the area.

    Carina Taylor, Head of PE at Chadsgrove School, Bromsgrove
  • Panathlon helps beyond the sporting field. The children know they’ve got something to work for, so their behaviour improves and it motivates them in the classroom too, because they know if they do work in class they get to come and take part in events like this.

    Cherie Lashmar, PE teacher at Columbus School, Chelmsford
