“Our partnership with What Ability is a thrilling step forward in our collective journey,” exclaimed Ayden Shaw, General Manager of Disability Sports Australia. “By combining our strengths, we can expand the reach of our programs and initiatives, ultimately providing more opportunities for people with disabilities to be active and socially connected.”
Jared Chapman, CEO of What Ability, echoed the sentiment, saying, “We are proud to partner with Disability Sports Australia. Their shared vision of an inclusive world and like-minded activities provide an exciting glimpse into what’s to come. We look forward to this helping happiness come first for Australians with disabilities.”
An announcement of this exciting partnership took place at the Activate Inclusion Sports Day event in Newcastle on Thursday, September 7. This event served as the perfect backdrop for the collaboration, as it created buzz around DSA’s new program, “Abilities Unleashed – Adults.” This program encourages and empowers adults with disabilities to explore local adaptive sports and active recreation opportunities.
The partnership is a testament to both organisations’ dedication to improving the lives of people with disabilities and promoting a more inclusive world. By leveraging each other’s strengths, DSA and What Ability aim to positively impact communities nationwide.
