Paralympics New Zealand (PNZ) is the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) for New Zealand.
We are a charity and our overall vision is ‘Through Para sport, lives will be transformed’. As a member of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), 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.
To do this, we support and celebrate the achievements of Para athletes at international and national competitions all year round. Every two years, we lead New Zealand Paralympic Teams to the Paralympic Games. We also work in the local community to advocate for sport to become more accessible for disabled people and to support the creation of more systems and programmes to enable participation in Para sport.
The support that PNZ receives through government funding, grants from trusts and foundations, donations, commercial partnerships and gifts in wills 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.
