Our vision is ‘all Australians have an opportunity to engage in sport and physical activity in a welcoming and inclusive environment’.
Our focus is ‘we collaborate, advocate and facilitate inclusive sport and physical activity for Australians with a disability’
Two years strong!
December has been a month of celebrations here at ASAPD. Not only have we celebrated International Day of People with Disability (#IDPwD), we’ve also celebrated our very own two year anniversary.
Two years ago, we officially announced the formation of the Alliance – a key peak agency for sport, with the collective vision to better serve the disability sport sector here in Australia.
This year we have continued contributing to several National Plans and Frameworks, Surveys, Events and Skills Training Resources to represent the needs of individuals living with disability, impairment, or limitation. We have been thrilled with the acceptance, support, and acknowledgement that our one voice strategy has resonated with the sport and physical activity sector.
We also launched our website back in July as a leading resource for accessible and inclusive sports around the country, which has had close to 900 visitations.
Robyn Smith, Chair of ASAPD has said, “It has been an absolute honour to chair the ASAPD and watch the nine organisations collaborate so closely. With a single message about the power of sport and physical activity to change the lives of people with a disability, impairment, or limitation.”
Two years strong with many more to come. We would like to thank Sport Australia, the nine National Sporting Organisations for people with a Disability (NSOD’s) and everyone who has helped advocate, educate, inform and support to date and look forward to a brighter and more inclusive future for all.
We hope you enjoy this snippet of just some of the activities and events we’ve been proud to support across 2022. Here’s to another rewarding year ahead!
