Special Olympics Suffolk was established in 2013 and received formal accreditation from Special Olympics GB in 2014.
We are a Delivery Network Branch of Special Olympics GB. This means that we are a group of like-minded clubs, organisations and individuals who have a shared interest in delivering, supporting, promoting and developing sports coaching and competition opportunities for people with intellectual (learning) disabilities in Suffolk.
We work with a variety of local partners including Waveney Gymnastics Club in Lowestoft, Orwell Panthers Athletics Club in Ipswich, Elatus Sports, ActivLives, Avenues East and Suffolk County Council.
This year we hosted Special Olympic Regional Athletic Competion in Ipswich and a Gymnastic competition in Lowestotft.
We currently have 10-15 Steering Group members who all give their time and energy voluntarily. We have a small but growing registered athlete curretnyl totalling 30-35 athletes.
Special Olympics Suffolk is proud to be part of helping Suffolk to become the ‘most active county’ in England.
