Sport at the highest level

As a co-founder of Swiss Paralympic, we provide support to athletes in order to enable their participation in Swiss and international competitions.

Effective partnerships 

We maintain various sustainable and successful partnerships in several different areas and we continuously strive to expand our networks.

PluSport is just one of many associations, clubs, foundations and institutions in Switzerland that are committed to the establishment and organisation of sporting events with and for people with disabilities. The organisations Procap Schweiz/Procap Sport, Schweizer Paraplegiker- Vereinigung/Rollstuhlsport Schweiz and PluSport Disability Sports Switzerland teamed up five years ago to establish the IG Sport & Handicap interest group. Since that time, IG Sport & Handicap has succeeded in defining and highlighting various important issues. IG Sport & Handicap cooperates with numerous other sport organisations, works to ensure equal opportunity in sport for people with disabilities, and seeks to exploit synergies wherever possible.
