The core mission of Sport Access Foundation is to provide financial assistance and support to enable children with a physical or intellectual disability to participate in sporting activities that would otherwise be beyond the financial means of that child or their parent(s) or guardian(s).
There are a number of ways in which Sport Access Foundation strives to supply such support.
Each year, the Sport Access Foundation Grant offers grants of $2000 each for children and young people with a disability to provide some assistince with expenses for their participation in sport.
The initial Grant was announced in June 2017. Grants will be awarded to applicants who best demonstrate the desire to succeed in their chosen sport and where the financial and moral support from Sports Access Foundation would assist in their access and development in their sport.
