ParalympicsGB is the name for the Great Britain and Northern Ireland Paralympic Team that competes at the summer and winter Paralympic Games. ParalympicsGB has a proud track record of coming in the top three at the last four summer Games. For London we had two ambitions; to win more medals across more sports than in Beijing and to use the power of the home Games to shift perceptions of disability sport and disabled people. We are confident that we achieved those ambitions and are now working hard to ensure the momentum created by London 2012 affects real change and lasting improvement. We are proud to be a supporting partner for the Sainsbury’s School Games, which is playing a vital role in providing disability sport opportunities across the country.
