Our Story

Our founder Alex was a volunteer at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, it was at this time Alex and two other volunteers, Dermot and Paul, noticed that a large number of athletes from developing nations had little or no kit. The harsh reality in the lack of proper kit for the athletes resulted in issues from training to competing and in some cases even causing injuries.

It was heartbreaking for them to watch athletes represent their country in front of the world, being held back by the lack of basic kit, and so they felt something had to be done. Initially they bought a few items of specific kit where they saw an issue, then the media heard about what they were doing, other athletes came forward and things started to snowball! Kit Us Out was born a week later and as they say the rest is history… Or in our case lots of late nights working out how to set up a charity and email chains to National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) around the world! 

The first project we under took was a big one, The London 2012 Paralympic Games. Along with the amazing support of the London games volunteers we were able to provide competition level kit to over 60 athletes from 16 nations.

After the London Games the interest continued and thanks to the huge level of interest and offers of support from the public across the globe Kit Us Out had become a registered charity in early 2013 and we then set our sights on the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Our footprint

Since the Commonwealth Games we have signed a partnership agreement with the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Powerlifting Federation and have been working with National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) and National Para athletics teams across the world, to highlight kit needs in the run up to the Rio Paralympic Games.

Not to mention we have gotten a hold of equipment that ranges from trainers and running spikes to tracksuits, cycle inner tubes and even goggles.

Our future

Our Founder will be representing Kit Us Out at the Rio Paralympics and will be taking out over 1,000 items of kit to Paralympians from developing nations competing at the games. 

But we are not resting there…We are already working towards the 2017 World Para Athletics Championships in London and the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in 2018.

The journey we have been on has been thanks to the generosity and support we have received from people and companies across the world.
