HomeAbout UsInclusion


Using the inspiration of the London 2012 Games to advocate for genuine inclusion at the heart of all events, large and small

We believe that events can be powerful tools to deliver a more inclusive society and organisers must address barriers to participation to allow disabled and non-disabled people to attend as equals.

In the ten years since Spirit of 2012 was established, we have funded many projects with inclusion as their focus. Our aim is to help ensure that disabled and non-disabled people can take part together as audience members, participants, volunteers and staff.

Our wealth of knowledge and insights will show decision makers, events organisers and delivery organisations the benefits of bringing together disabled and non-disabled people in meaningful and how events can be intentionally designed to be accessible, diverse and inclusive from their inception to their legacy.
