The Mixed Ability Forum is the advisory body to IMAS. The Forum has the mandate to provide guidance and expertise on social impact, research, strategy, policy, and future development.
The Mixed Ability Forum is made up of participants, coaches, professionals and experts who share our vision to grow into an ever more innovative organisation. We can’t thank them enough for their time and commitment.
We would welcome new members to the Forum. Please get in touch if you would like to be involved!
