Path to Success is supporting women in disability sport as they seek to achieve their dream of winning a Paralympic Medal.

Despite the success of the London 2012 Paralympics, disability sport in the UK continues to be underfunded. This forces  many talented athletes to either generate their own funding, or give up on their dream.

Our mission is to secure the legacy of disability sport in the UK and inspire a new generation of British female Paralympic stars.

In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8th 2018, we announced the launch of our campaign #PathtoTokyo2020, which supports & empowers female athletes as they seek to achieve their dream of competing in the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics & Beyond. Financial support provided by Path to Success will help to cover the cost of coaching, training, equipment, travel and tournaments.
