What Ability join forces with Rugby Australia

Rugby Australia and What Ability, an NDIS provider, join forces with a shared mission of prioritising happiness for people living with disabilities.

Friday, 27th October 2023

Rugby Australia and What Ability, a leading National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider, will unite to put happiness first for people living with disabilities across the country.

What Ability is an NDIS provider that utilises professional and semi-professional athletes as support workers to provide community based experiences for people living with a disability, including swimming, bush walks, beach days, indoor activities and overnight camps. 

Together they’re harnessing the power of sport to support all abilities and place inclusion at the forefront of Rugby, whilst simultaneously increasing visibility of disability on a national scale.

What Ability CEO Jared Chapman said: “This commitment from Rugby Australia is paving the way forward towards a more inclusive Australia. There are great synergies between our organisations and we believe this partnership will strengthen their already inclusive framework. We’re creating real change and are able to continue putting happiness first for people living with a disability.”

Rugby Australia General Manager of Community Rugby Michael Procajlo said: “We are committed to providing opportunities for everyone in the community to be involved and respected within rugby. Partnering with What Ability is a significant step forward as they will play a key role in promoting GingerCloud Foundation’s Modified Rugby Program (MRP), which is a world class program established for neurodiverse young people. Together we look forward to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those living with a disability.”

What Ability Support Worker and Wallabies prop Angus Bell is very excited about the partnership, commenting on the utmost importance of the collaboration, “Rugby is such a key and celebrated part of Australian culture. For inclusion and diversity to be at the centre of the game with the support of What Ability is truly amazing. I can’t wait to see how this partnership evolves.” 

What Ability provide extensive training to ensure support workers are capable, fit and confident in their role. Their training includes the following qualifications; Epilepsy Essentials, First Aid/CPR certificate, NDIS Orientation Module, NDIS Worker Check, Police Check, Water Rescue, Working with Children Check, two professional references, and where applicable, Safety Interventions, Medication administration training and Emergency Medication administration training.
