Special Olympics GB
Special Olympics Great Britain (GB), is a non-profit organisation and the largest provider of year-round sports coaching and athletic competition in summer and winter sports for children and adults of ALL abilities with intellectual disabilities.
We operate across England, Scotland and Wales and currently have 105 all ability, inclusive sports clubs covering 28 sports, providing approximately 27,000 regular hour-long sporting sessions in an average year. All of which is delivered by an amazing team of over 4,000 volunteers who support more than 10,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities to take part.
Past International Director, Phil Nathan MBE from Lions Club International said: “Special Olympics GB and Lions Clubs International have the capacity to create countless moments of excellence for people with intellectual disabilities. As international partners, it is advantageous that both organisations work to help the other in achieving their core organisational goals and objectives. By utilising each other’s core capabilities, together we can usher in an enhanced, higher quality program to bring positive change to the lives of persons with intellectual disabilities, their families, and their communities.”
