Canberra PWDACT Sporting Network
We acknowledge the power of sport as a vehicle for social inclusion.
The purpose of the Canberra Sports Network is to foster inclusion and connections within the community for people with disabilities. If you or someone you know has a disability, they can now more than ever, be involved in sports.
If you are looking for options where you can become more connected, learn new skills and hobbies, and build more relationships in the community, and not to mention the health and mental health benefits of sports; please check out our growing list of partners.
Each sporting code has various levels of inclusive options. The options will vary greatly depending upon the type of sport, and the type of disability. We have the commitment of our partners towards inclusion, and we look forward to fostering new inclusive opportunities and seeing cross-collaboration across Canberra’s sporting codes.
If you would like to find out more about a sport you can get in touch with one of the partners below. If your sports code or club would like to be a part of our network, please download our Partner Information Pack, and get in touch with our office today!
The network has been made possible through the ILC Grants 2019-20 under the Department of Social Services.
