Will Perry speaks out on the ableism he faces in everyday life

In a new series launched on International Day of Disabled People, our Paralympians are taking the mic and speaking to the world directly about their lives outside of sport - the things that matter to them.

The monthly series will feature athletes from across our Paralympic sports and impairment groups, forming part of a first step in co-creating ParalympicsGB’s new focus on social impact over the next decade.

In the first episode, swimmer Will Perry speaks on the ableist discrimination and attitudes he faces in everyday life, from childhood to Tokyo 2020, that have shaped his life as an athlete and a disabled person living in the UK.
