Around two per cent of the global population have an intellectual impairment – one of the biggest groups in society. When you add in Down’s syndrome and autism, the scale and ambition of our work is clear. We are inspired by a belief that these so called ‘disabilities’ should not be a barrier to enjoying sport and reaching your potential.
The International Federation for Intellectual Impairment Sport (INAS) helps more than 300,000 of the world’s best athletes compete in a variety of winter and summer sports. We organise competitions such as world and regional Championships and manage eligibility and classification of athletes, working with other International Federations. Three of the sports on our programme – swimming, athletics and table tennis – feature at the Paralympic Games.
We also promote inclusion of people with intellectual impairments in sport and society and are a member of the International Paralympic Committee.
INAS was formed in 1986 and has grown to a membership of more than 80 nations across the world.
Every four years we host the INAS Global Games – the world’s largest elite sports event for athletes with an intellectual impairment that features nine sports.
INAS is registered as a charity and is based in Sheffield, Great Britain. We are supported by a huge volunteer workforce around the world.
Our activities are only possible with the help of fundraising and contributions from our member nations. We do not qualify for state or lottery support.
