We work with sports governing bodies and other agencies to ensure that athletes with learning disability are included at all levels, with the appropriate support and training needed. We implement, manage and lead the eligibility and classification system for athletes with learning disability from across the UK and across a number of sports.
We select, manage and support the GB Team at various Championships, including the Virtus Global Games and support the athletes and families to be as prepared for the rigors of international sport. In some sports, we support the National Governing Bodies as they select and manage athletes to Virtus World and European Championships. We are the organisation that implements, manages and leads the eligibility and classification system for athletes from across the UK.
We work to raise the profile of sport for people with learning disability and raise the profile of the athletes whilst celebrating their successes across the sports. We challenge outdated attitudes to open the way for people with learning disability to have a choice and control in their daily lives. We advocate a cultural change in approach to disability.
