As well as being the official professional service provider to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Deloitte supports several Paralympians including Sarah Storey - Team GB’s most highly decorated female Paralympian currently competing. In the 2012 Olympic Games, Great Britain will be entering its biggest ever Paralympic team and Deloitte has been a large investor in disability sport. Part of this has involved finding ways to connect people with disabilities with opportunities to take part in sport around the country. To do this, they have created Deloitte Parasport in a joint initiative with the British Paralympic Association (BPA). One of the main features of the site is a wizard that helps users to select sports depending on their disability. You can then view more information about each sport and find clubs where you can participate. This self-assessment wizard and parasport club finder also have widgets which you can include on any website. There is also a lot of information about various coaching and scholarships available to disabled athletes. The site aims to encourage more people with disabilities to participate in a wide range of sports, either at a recreational or competitive level, potentially to become the Paralympians of the future. As a side note, Deloitte are also aiming to raise £1million for the Paralympics GB team with their ‘Ride Across Britain’, which will see over 700 riders cycle 960 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats – but if you fancy a challenge there are only 30 places left!
