Tim Reddish OBE, newly re-elected chairman of the British Paralympic Association, has revealed his vision for the organisation and how to build on their current strengths going into the 2016 Olympics. 

Reddish was re-elected as chairman of the BPA yesterday along with a number of board changes. 

Looking at the 2016 Games in Rio, Reddish outlined the strengths they wish to build on. 

Reddish told iSportconnect exclusively: “We wish to build upon the excellent foundation that we’ve established over the last four year cycle. We have strong governance, risk management and as a charity we do not have any financial deficit going into the next 4 year cycle. “ 

Reddish also revealed the different aspects of the organisation he would like to change for the better including continual work with partners. 

“Through our vision of ‘Inspire the world to be a better place for disabled people’ we wish to empower delivery and facilitate change,” he added. 

“We believe that through strong facilitation and brokering with our key partners and membership we can collectively achieve this. Our primary focus will always be to be the “best prepared” ParalympicsGB team for both the 2014 Sochi Paralympic Winter Games and the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games.”
