Paralympics New Zealand is the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) for New Zealand.
We are a charity and our overall vision is ‘Excellence & Equity through Sport’. We are part of a worldwide social change movement, which uses the power of sport to positively influence community perceptions of disabled people and to promote a more diverse and inclusive society.
We train and celebrate the achievements of Para athletes at international and national competitions all year round. Every two years, we lead New Zealand teams to the Paralympic Games. We also deliver community programmes, systems and events on a constant basis, which assist disabled people into Para sport. Lastly, we advocate to make sport more available for disabled people.
Our funding comes from a mix of public donations, fundraisers, gifts and bequests, commercial partners, plus government and community grants, which together make our Para sport, community and advocacy programmes possible.
We remain incredibly grateful for any support received. You can help too, by visiting Support Us or Donate Now.
