Our Story

What Ability’s goal is to recruit as many young professional athletes as possible to work in the disability sector and dissolve stigma around how they are perceived when spending their time away from the pitch.

Founder and CEO of What Ability Steve Dresler has been working in this field for many years, witnessing first-hand the benefits in providing athletes as carers. Motivated by his extensive network of fellow professional athletes and many requests from clients, he created the What Ability platform to create and connect a community, with a vision to grow nationally.

Having faced early retirement through injury, What Ability is the evolution of Steve’s innate desire to create positive impact and build a community of his peers, professional athletes who are committed to connecting with children and adults with disabilities. To share time, experiences and connect meaningfully to enhance the clients’ perception of what is possible, that nothing can hold you back and together, we can do anything.

Our Vision

What Ability’s goal is to recruit every male and female professional athlete in Australia onto the platform as support workers. NRL, Super rugby, AFL,
A-league, Super netball, cricket, track, swimming and more.
