Knowledge and appreciation of Disabled people in society remains low. Disabled people are not just less likely to play sport, they’re also less likely to have a job. A recent survey showed 49% felt excluded from society.

ParalympicsGB want to change that and this is why they are starting a movement. The Paralympics are a great time for Disabled people to be centre stage once again and show everyone that they are Impossible to Ignore.

ParalympicsGB is the UK’s largest disability sports charity, but not many people know that. They support Will and other athletes to travel, prepare, and perform at their best at the Paralympic Games. They harness the power of sport to break down barriers, shift perceptions and increase opportunities for all Disabled people.
