What is Disability Sport?

The Paralympic Games features a wide variety of disability sports.

In 2011, in addition to EFDS receiving national partner funding from Sport England, the charity along with several of its member organisations (NDSOs- National Disability Sports Organisations) were pleased to receive further National Lottery funding. The NDSOs are British Blind Sport, Cerebral Palsy Sport, Dwarf Sports Association, Mencap Sport, Special Olympics GB, UK Deaf Sport and Wheelpower. In 2014 at EFDS's AGM, LimbPower were also given NDSO status.

Events featured in the Paralympic Games includes: archery, athletics, boccia, cycling, equestrian, football, goalball, judo, powerlifting, sailing, shooting, swimming, table tennis, volleyball, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair fencing, wheelchair rugby and wheelchair tennis.
