Individual Giving

By supporting us you will bring joy and pride to the lives of more children and adults with an intellectual disability by giving them the opportunity to take part in Special Olympics GB year-round sports programmes.

We currently offer sports training and competition opportunities to 10,000 children and adults with an intellectual disability, which represents less than a quarter of one per cent of people with an intellectual disability in Great Britain. Your support will help us reach many more of those we can’t currently help.

Your support will help transform the life of someone with an intellectual disability!
