Paralympics New Zealand is the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) for New Zealand.
PNZ is a charity and our overall vision is ‘Excellence & Equity through Sport’. As a member of the International Paralympic Committee, 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.
PNZ support 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.
PNZ support community Para sport programmes and events and advocate for sport and systems to be in place to enable disabled people to participate in Para sport.
PNZ's 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.
