Family Support Programme
Special Olympics has a vibrant and active Family Support Programme organised at national, regional and local level.
We constantly strive to involve families, extended families and care providers of Special Olympics athletes and encourage them to participate and share in the joys of the Special Olympics Programme.
The aims of the Family Support Programme are:
· to encourage family members to become involved in the life of their athlete.
· to support their athlete in training and competition.
· to become advocates for the Special Olympics movement.
· to encourage new families who can benefit from Special Olympics to join.
In addition, the programme enables families to get together, share their experiences and common interests and provide support to each other.
