Panathlon gives almost 22,000 young people with disabilities and special needs every year the opportunity to take part in competitive sport

 In the last year, 21,906 children and young people from 1,335 schools in England and Wales took part in ‘mini Paralympics’ multi-sport competitions for secondary or primary-age pupils as well as our dedicated swimming, football, boccia and ten-pin bowling programmes. With an additional 4,611 students aged 14-19 fulfilling roles as specially-trained Young Leaders at our competitions, that made a grand total of 26,517 young people engaged in our sporting programmes in a single academic year.

  • It’s particularly inspiring to see how far Panathlon has come as an organisation and how many lives have been touched. There is no better illustration of the power of sport than a Panathlon event.

    Kate Hoey, MP and Commissioner for Sport for the Mayor of London
  • For schools to come together like this is great, you don’t get that luxury very often. Social skills are some of the most important things we try and teach them at our school so to see them interact, celebrate when they win and shake hands at the end is spot on

    Liam Welch, teacher at Billing Brook School, Northampton
  • This is the first time I’ve played football here at Wembley. It’s inspiring. It’s good to take part, as tournaments like this aren’t normally for disabled kids.

    Cameron O’Connor, aged 12, Southwark
  • Never have we been to an event before that was aimed perfectly at the ability of our children.

    Penny Warner, Head of PE at Amwell View School, Hertfordshire
  • I’m really glad I’ve met somebody with the same condition as me. We’ve both got spina bifida, so I can relate to him and I’m really glad that we had a chat. He’s a big inspiration, so I think I might take up racing!

    Zahra Naqvi, aged 13, Milton Keynes, Bucks, on meeting Panathlon patron Richard Chiassaro
  • Today was fun; I loved everything I did today. It was a great also meeting Paralympian gold medalist, Liz Johnson.

    Corey Black, Blackpool
  • You’ve got children here that don’t particularly gel very well and to walk away with the trophy as regional champions is a pretty awesome achievement. It’s a reward for teamwork.

    Jane Chave, PE teacher at Priory School, Bury, part of the Suffolk team to win the East Regional Final.
  • I’m the only pupil on the Panathlon team from my school, so it’s a great opportunity to have fun and meet other people.

    Jamie Keat, aged 10, Hammersmith & Fulham
  • 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
  • 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
