On Monday 30th March, the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games were rescheduled to take place between 24th August and 5th September 2021.

Paralympics New Zealand (PNZ) now looks forward to 2021 and to continuing our work dedicated to the promotion of the Paralympic Movement across New Zealand and the development of systems and structures to grow community and High Performance Para sport nationally.

With the Paralympic Games postponed until next year, we will maintain a particular focus on talent identification and Para athlete development to support the Paralympians of tomorrow, whilst also continuing our support to our High Performance Para athletes and their coaches and support teams throughout this period.

Paralympics New Zealand (PNZ) is the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) for New Zealand.

We are a charity and our overall vision is ‘Excellence & Equity through Sport’.

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 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.

Our funding comes from a mix of public donations, fundraisers, philanthropic partners, 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.

    Donating due to a conversation with a door knocker who visited last night (I just don't like giving to door knockers as there are so many scammers).
