“We want Inas to be the leading organisation promoting sport for people with an intellectual disability worldwide”
We manage an annual programme of more than 15 Regional and World Championship competitions working closely with the International Federations for sport, maintain Regional and World records/rankings, and manage the eligibility and classification process for athletes with an intellectual disability.
“We believe that athletes with an intellectual disability should have the opportunity to compete at the highest level in sport”
Every 4 years we host the Inas Global Games – a 10 day celebration of sport for elite athletes with an intellectual disability that includes World Championship competition in 7 sports.
Inas has an office base in England, but is supported by a huge volunteer workforce around the World.
