The British Paralympic Association today committed to focusing harder than ever in the next five years on combining excellence on the field of play with inspiration off it, as it revealed ‘Inspiring Excellence’, its new Strategic Plan for 2016-2021.
The plan outlines the intended vision, mission, values, strategic priorities, organisational structure and planning for the period from the Rio 2016 to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games and commits the BPA to a four year programme of targeted planning and continued development.
Tim Hollingsworth, Chief Executive of the BPA, said: “Our principle role is to inspire excellence in the team at the Games and in turn that excellence can inspire a better world for disabled people. It is that dual focus which is so fundamental to the BPA and to the wider Paralympic Movement.
“The Strategic Plan rightly focusses our attention on our primary responsibility: to use lessons learned from London, Sochi and Rio in order to ensure that we are best prepared for the challenges and opportunities of preparing our winter and summer teams for competing over the course of the next four years.
“We recognise the unique opportunity our Paralympic teams provide to unite and inspire disabled and non-disabled people alike and further shift perceptions. But we know there is still a long way to go and we remain in the foothills rather than the summit.”
