Many community sporting clubs are already doing great things to welcome and include people with a disability into their club environment. Sometimes however, clubs may need a little bit of advice and support to actively encourage people with a disability to participate fully in the life of their club.
There are lots of simple things that your club can do to become the most welcoming and inclusive environment that it can, and create a place where everyone wants to be. Being known as having a welcoming and inclusive culture can make your club more appealing to a whole range of new participants, members, volunteers, sponsors and supporters.
Sports Focus is funded by Sport and Recreation Victoria to deliver the Access for All Abilities program across the Loddon Campaspe region. Through this program, Sports Focus works with clubs to develop inclusive sport and recreation opportunities and environments for people of all abilities.
