Sports Inclusion Disability (S.I.D.) Program
Many people with disabilities are precluded from participating in sports activities and often it is simply because of a lack of understanding on the part of service and facility providers. The S.I.D. Program intends to address the imbalance in opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in Sport and Physical Activity, through working in partnership with all stakeholders.
Main Objectives are to:
- Increase the number of people with disabilities participating in sport & physical activity on a regular basis.
- Increase the number of participation opportunities for people with disabilities to participate in sport and physical activity.
- Support current participation and the work of disability sports and physical activity clubs and disability organisations.
- Encourage and support mainstream sports and physical activity clubs in the area of inclusion.
