If I ever did one good thing in my medical career it was to introduce sport into the treatment and rehabilitation of disabled people. Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann.
The history of the Paralympic Movement is alive with personal stories of courage and determination, humble beginnings and also the power of community. Without the continued support of volunteers, the Paralympic Movement wouldn't have been able to evolve.
Come and join the team at the National Paralympic Heritage Trust to capture the story through cataloguing archives and collections, record the story through oral histories and spread the word through events and the pop-up museum. Whatever your skills or interests there is an opportunity waiting for you to continue the legacy of Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann and ensure the world knows about the role of Stoke Mandeville in this global movement.
We welcome you to realise your 'one good thing' with us as a volunteer. Contact us at [email protected] for more information and for details on how to apply.
