Who we are


Founded in 2010 by Margarita Sweeney-Baird, Inclusive Skating became a registered charity in September 2011. Supporters of the Inclusive Skating movement are establishing clubs and projects across the world and building towards our first World Championship.

We develop events with Special Olympics GB, British Blind Sport and Genetic Disorders UK too!

What we do


We seek to develop ice skating as a sport that will include all skaters with a disability or an impairment in the UK and globally and obtain recognition for ice skating to become a paralympic sport. We hold major annual ice skating competitions. We support the development of family and care based Inclusive Skating clubs that support the Inclusive Skaters and their community.

We have developed Rules of Competition and a Classification Code that allows skaters with any form of disability or an impairment (visual, hearing, physical or intellectual) to compete together on an equal basis in figure, dance and speed skating competition. All skating disciplines are now included in the programme of events. We have created the first Inclusive Skating for Genes Championships that is specially for children with genetic disorders.

Get Involved


We are seeking support and participation from clubs all over the world. So far we have had skaters from Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland, Canada, Austria, Russia, Iceland, USA and Finland.
