International Wheelchair & Amputee Sports Federation
International Wheelchair & Amputee Sports Federation

As a multi-sport governing body (IF), it has been in existence from 1952 and followed the vision of its creator and leader, Sir Ludwig Guttmann, in establishing the event now known as the Paralympic Games.

IWAS, throughout its history, has been a generous contributor to the nations and their athletes, nurturing leadership and skills in their volunteer technical expert base, and has never lost sight over the past 55 years of the basic premise for its existence so firmly encapsulated in its motto 'Friendship, Unity and Sportsmanship' and mission statement.

Formerly two separate organisations, ISMWSF and ISOD amalgamated in 2004 to create IWAS and continue to provide and indeed expand upon Games programmes as well as sport specific development and Championship programmes.

Founders of the Paralympic Games and movement

Founding member of the International Paralympic Committee

Originator of the renowned international Stoke Mandeville model of sport for persons with a disability

Creators of the international pathway for athletes across all sports from grass roots to elite

Nearly 60 years' experience and success worldwide, supported by a network of over 70 national member organisations

IWAS (International Wheelchair & Amputee Sports Federation) is a vibrant and constantly growing Federation providing opportunity for persons with a physical disability to participate in sport from grass roots to elite.
