Part-time, flexible hours raising funds for an international disability sport charity
Approximately 1 in 20 people have an intellectual (or learning) disability. Currently many do not have the opportunity to enjoy sport or the chance to compete at the highest levels – Inas exists to change this.
Inas, the International Federation for sport for athletes with an intellectual disability within the Paralympic movement has today announced the shortlisted nominees for the 1st Inas Awards which take place in April.
The Awards are a new event recognizing the achievements of athletes with an intellectual disability and the many people who support support them.
