Full parity for all athletes in Slovenia!

Representatives from the Slovenian National Paralympic Committee (NPC) have met with the Minister of Education, Science and Sport to discuss the draft of a new law which will bring improved regulation for Para sport in the country. For the first time the draft of the new law recognises Para sport as equal to able bodied sport. The most significant change is to make the rights of both groups the same, which will have a huge impact on Para sport in Slovenia. The proposed new law also recognises the NPC as the governing body for Para sports nationally.

In accordance with the bill, the NPC will nominate one member to sit on the Expert Council for Sports which will be established by the government for decision-making. The NPC will also be responsible for training people with impairments to take up professional roles within sport.
