Involvements

Special Olympics Sweden

Special Olympics Sweden is part of the Swedish Parasport Federation and we offer a wide range of sports and recreational activities for people with intellectual disabilities. Our aim is to offer everyone the chance of an active life, regardless of their intellectual ability.

To achieve this, we arrange regional, national and international sporting events. We drive the debate on the benefits of inclusion. And we support clubs and associations with both the knowledge and tools they need to develop activities for the target group. Special Olympics Sweden has over 10,000 active athletes.
