We are the British Paralympic Association, or the BPA. As the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) for Great Britain, it is our responsibility to select, prepare, enter, fund and manage the Great Britain and Northern Ireland team at the Paralympic Games. This team is known as ParalympicsGB.
In what are extremely challenging times globally, where communities across the world have been rocked by the far-reaching impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Championing Change: our ten-year strategy 2022 - 2032 looks to set a long-term direction for the British Paralympic Association. It both reflects on the near-term challenges and pressures and looks further ahead, setting ambitions for a ten-year period.
Thinking beyond the four-year Paralympic cycle allows us to raise our ambitions as a world-leading Paralympic team and as a force for change for disabled people across the UK. London 2012 kindled a passion for disability sport and demonstrated the power of the Paralympics to inspire a shift in perceptions of disability and ability. This strategy builds on that through the continued success of ParalympicsGB and by delivering real and sustainable improvements to the lives of disabled people across the UK over the next ten years.
We are a Disability Confident Committed employer
