valuing diverse and inclusive participation

Sport and recreation is firmly embedded in the Australian culture and forms a significant part of our daily lives. It provides not only an arena to stay physically fit and healthy, but also plays a crucial role in the development of social networks and improving quality of life and wellbeing. Local sport and recreation clubs play a pivotal role in providing these opportunities to their local community.

Inclusion: Game On! has been developed to provide information and support to further develop the welcoming and inclusive practises of sporting clubs and increase awareness of the barriers preventing participation.

The program will specifically focus on providing increased opportunities for people with a disability and those from diverse cultures who may be disconnected within our community.
