Atos was a major sponsor of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, London 2012.
" ... Atos Healthcare, a division of Atos operating in the UK, has attracted sustained criticism from many quarters for its management of the Work Capability Assessment for the UK's Department of Work and Pensions, and particularly for its insensitive treatment of disabled people and the manner in which the work assessments are conducted." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atos accessed 15 Jan 2013

The Paralympic Games is an international multi-sport event, involving athletes with a range of physical and intellectual disabilities.
NotesNews: " I'm not Oscar Pistorius: The Paralympics give the impression that people like me are shirkers if we don't overcome disability .... I'm in my 60s now, and there's a limit to what the coalition can do to me. I worry about the young - those who can no more choose work than choose not to be disabled, but will have their benefits slashed anyway. As a spectacle, the Paralympics might inspire them, but as a symbol of what society thinks disability means, it will hurt them. And sponsored by Atos and welcomed by David Cameron, the Paralympics are in danger of turning into an insult to all of us." Robert Jones, The Guardian
