We are proud to be endorsed by 3 of the most successful British paralympians; Baroness Grey-Thompson, Dame Sarah Storey and Ellie Simmonds OBE.
This is what they had to say about Kit Us Out.

Baroness Grey-Thompson

Baroness Grey-Thompson

“We often take for granted that any athlete competing at the highest level of their sport will have the best equipment that they need.  However, this is not the case for some athletes with a disability who compete for emerging nations and may arrive at a major event ill-prepared and with the most basic of equipment and funding. Kit Us Out recognises that problem and even in its earliest development at the London 2012 Paralympics, managed to provide kit for 60 athletes from 16 nations. Not state-of-the-art equipment, but the most basic – running shoes, spikes, wheelchair spare parts, to ensure that as many athletes as possible could compete on a par with their more affluent competitors. Kit Us Out embraces the vision of legacy that Lord Coe gave to the IOC in Singapore many years ago, and I am very happy to support their work.”

“Part of performing to your best is feeling confident and having the right basic equipment is essential. Paralympians have little or no support in a lot of countries and the more equal the playing field for every one, the better. Another impressive legacy from London 2012!”

“Kit Us Out is an inspired idea. The charity is looking to even up the playing field in equipment terms throughout the world of para-sport. The gap between the most fortunate and least fortunate athletes is even greater in the world of para-sport and not every athlete who competed in London 2012 and Paralympic Games before that was as well supported and in such an established national programme as we are here in the UK. I know the work of this charity will be very positively received in the countries where support is being given and look forward to seeing their work progress.”
