We aim to create more welcoming sporting clubs and community groups. This will provide greater opportunities for people to become connected through their community via the vehicles of sport and recreation.
We empower local grass roots clubs and state sporting associations to be inclusive of all members of their community, regardless of their background or ability. We offer a range of training, mentoring and consultancy advice for all associations and clubs, and specialise in identifying the benefits of including people of all abilities into sport & recreation.
The value of sport to a community extends far beyond the sport itself. It can play a role in bringing communities closer together, deliver social and cultural impacts, develop social capital, and reduce isolation for marginalised peoples. We are passionate about ensuring everyone benefits from the positive outcomes involved in sport participation – whether it be at a grass roots level right through to professional leagues.
Many community groups endeavour to be inclusive and help their community. For some, the biggest barrier is not knowing where to start or who to approach, whilst others have more specific issues requiring further address. We provide a comprehensive and engaging service that enables groups to open their doors to a wider audience, and in doing so, reap the benefits of being publicly recognised as a leader in social inclusion.
THE POWER OF SPORT
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite kin a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination”
– Nelson Mandela
Karratha-Dampier Tee-Ball Club’s Story
“Being involved in the Karratha Community Program has shown me that there are no boundaries! There is no ‘us’ & ‘them’, it’s about being one community. One Karratha community! I can’t speak highly enough about what this Program has done for myself, my club and our community”
