Creating opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities to shine.

Special Olympics Covid-19 advice and guidance for clubs

Our funding

Like many non-profit sport organisations, we rely on the generosity of our volunteers, partners and donors to deliver our training and events. 

Due to COVID-19, a significant proportion of funding we rely on to operate is not available.


This means your donations are now more important than ever.

With your help, we can continue to provide opportunities for our athletes to connect with others and maintain their physical and mental health. 

Sports you can play

We currently offer training and competition in the following sports:

  • Athletics

  • Alpine Skiing

  • Basketball

  • Bocce

  • Equestrian

  • Football

  • Bowling

  • Golf

  • Indoor Bowls

  • Powerlifting

  • Snowboarding

  • Swimming

  • Table Tennis

Everyone is welcome to join a club. You can become an athlete, volunteer or coach.
