About Us



Neurodiverse Sport CIC is a not-for-profit organisation, founded by Caragh McMurtry & her husband Michael Mottram in 2022


The duo founded Neurodiverse Sport (NdS) is response to their lived experience of neurodivergence in sport


Caragh is a former Great Britain rower, Tokyo Olympian and Autistic, and Michael (Mikey) is a former Great Britain rower, current elite gravel cyclist, Dyslexic and Dyspraxic - together they have over 30 years experience of neurodivergence & high performance sport

In 2023 two new Directors joined the Neurodiverse Sport fold - Charles Freeman and Zoe-Jane Littlewood; find out how you could contribute by emailing






We are dedicated to being as representative and as inclusive as possible

We do not believe in short cuts and appreciate honesty and authenticity - it's the only way to make true progress after all!!!

In 2023, we appointed two new Directors to Neurodiverse Sport CIC - Charles Freeman and Zoe-Jane Littlewood - and they've contributed so much already!

As our team expands, we hope to grow our impact alongside - at every level of sport

We aspire to use the stories of successful neurodivergent sportspeople and athletes to set an example to sports teams, clubs and organisations, and to inspire those who feel most marginalised and underrepresented

We see success as medals and accolades for some, and simply putting one foot in front of another for others - both are as inspiring when achieved through adversity...


... after all, every one of us faces differing degrees of challenge in our lives
