Our archives hold a large range of collections related to the Paralympics including photographs of spinal injury patients being treated at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in the 1940s. We also have more recent items such as mood boards from the opening ceremony of the Paralympics in the London 2012 Games.

We have an agreement with the National Paralympic Heritage Trust to catalogue and care for our collections. However, due to the large backlog of collections, items that can be viewed online are currently limited.
