Our Mission / Objective

Vision

World class sports performance through excellence in the delivery of our business and the development of our people.

Mission

The APC aims to be the leading National Paralympic Committee and one of Australia’s leading sport administration organisations.

Operating philosophy

We have a constitutional mandate to co-ordinate, represent and promote the Paralympic movement in Australia.

Our governance is based on an understanding and respect of roles, responsibilities and authorities set within the Board structure and the management and control of the organisation.

We will achieve our goals by adopting and executing outstanding business strategies.

The delivery and performance of the Australian Paralympic Team is our primary focus and it is a key element of each APC business unit.

In executing our business strategies, we will enter into meaningful and cooperative partnerships with government, business and sporting organisations.

We will assist our partners to achieve commercial value for their investment while enhancing the APC’s own position and delivering social good through the APC’s brand, athletes and services.

Sporting excellence, in all its dimensions, is an overarching goal of the APC and forms a key measure for ongoing evaluation.

Corporate

The APC is respected as a leading Paralympic sporting organisation and is well represented internationally.  It is also known to be successful in sport and marketing.  Australia plays a lead role in steering the Oceania Paralympic Committee, the members of which are Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand and Australia. Since 2000, the Australian Government has generously provided the APC with a grant to service its Paralympic business in this region.

Operations

APC Headquarters are located at Sydney Olympic Park.  Sydney Olympic Park suits the APC brand aspirations of corporate, sporting and elite.  There are five operating State Branches: New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.

Sport

Australia has participated in the Paralympic Summer Games since the first Games in Rome in 1960.  Medal success in these Games has risen since Rome (8 medals) to London (85 medals).

Australia has participated in the Paralympic Winter Games since their inception in 1976. Australia competes in Alpine and Nordic events with male and female participants.

Following the Sydney 2000 Games, the APC adopted a policy of mainstreaming which sees generic National Federations responsible for the preparation of their athletes to Paralympic level.  The sports which have been mainstreamed are: Para-athletics, Wheelchair basketball, Para-cycling, Para-equestrian, Football (5 and 7-a-side), Para-rowing, Para-sailing, Para-shooting, Para-swimming,Para- table tennis, Wheelchair tennis, Para-triathlon and Para-canoe.

Our Services

At the Australian Paralympic Committee (APC), we help Australians with disabilities participate in sport and compete at the Paralympic Games through partnerships with governments, business, sporting bodies and the community.

We are responsible for preparing the Australian Paralympic Summer and Winter Teams for the Paralympic Games, which we have done successfully since 1990. At the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, Australia  placed fifth on the gold medal tally with 22 gold, 30 silver and 29 bronze medals out of 159 countries.

We work with our National Federation partners to help identify potential Paralympians and assist athletes to prepare for competition by providing funding for coaching, equipment and travel in the lead up to the Summer and Winter Paralympic Games.

Our partnerships with governments, business, national sporting organisations and disability groups are critical to delivering a successful Paralympic Team to the Games.

We believe participation in sport provides positive social and physical benefits to people with disabilities, and plays an important role in changing community perceptions of people with disabilities.

At the heart of what we do is our athletes, who strive to compete at an elite level, upholding the ideals of the Paralympic movement.
