Australian Disability Sport Inc
What does this organisation do?
ADS works to build community relationships and fund groups with a disability focus. We have a 35 person fundraising collection team. They generate income to support partnerships with communities and stakeholders linked with disability sports. We raise awareness of disability sport to the public and local sporting communities. We encourage and fund more people with a disability to participate in sports of their choice. We support all our volunteers, and assist disabled persons linked to organisations such as Blind Cricket Australia, Blind Sport SA, Special Olympics, Lighthouse Youth Projects and Riding for the Disabled. We have proven links in all Regions within the State in over seven years of successful operations.
People with a disability or chronic health issue
Living with a disability or long term or chronic health issue can severely affect our wellbeing through unemployment or underemployment, social isolation or exclusion and poor mental or physical health.
Young people disengaged from education and work
We all want the best for our children and young people but the evidence suggests that if young people are not engaged with work or education their future wellbeing is in jeopardy. They are more likely to experience social and economic disadvantage, poorer physical and mental health and be at risk of social exclusion in the short and longer term.
