My Sport, My Voice! is raising the profile of the UK’s elite athletes with learning disability by providing a platform to showcase their sporting achievements and inspire others to succeed.

The Athlete Ambassadors have all excelled in their chosen sport at the highest level and have been chosen from each country of the UK. They include a London 2012 Paralympic Games gold medallist, several World Champions, and two England LD national team captains. The project is backed by the UK Sports Association’s partners in each country of the UK; English Federation of Disability Sport, Scottish Disability Sport, Disability Sport Wales, and Disability Sports Northern Ireland, as well as our member organisations.

The Athlete Ambassadors are co-delivering workshops in their regions and countries whilst representing the programme in the media to educate and enlighten not just the sporting community but the wider general public too. The Reps are working in a supporting role to assist the Ambassadors.

My Sport, My Voice! is all about creating a positive, lasting legacy from the London 2012 Games through challenging perceptions of disability through the efforts of some fantastic athletes. We are delighted to fund this project and many others which empower people to get out, be involved and feel better.
