About the Programme
One of our flagship programmes over the next four years is to build on the success of the London 2012 Paralympic Games in challenging perceptions of disability (including self-perceptions) and empowering disabled people to better participate in their communities.
As a matter of principle, all other Spirit programmes will contain activity for and with disabled people, in addition to the Spirit of Achievement programme.
We have a Spirit of Achievement Panel, comprising individuals from the world of arts, culture, campaigning and disability sport. They inform our decisions and investments to ensure that our work in this area involves the right people and has the biggest possible impact. They challenge our thinking, help us define open funding opportunities and shape our communications.
Spirit of Achievement is a £4.6m investment across the UK.
