Welcome to SAF

From our Founder

Since retiring from Paratriathlon, my focus now is Sport Access Foundation and building a career in advocacy for diversity and inclusion. I am incredibly excited of the potential for the Foundation. With 2032 now on the horizon for Australian sports, Sport Access Foundation is well placed to continually cement our position as the leading grant provider for young Australians in sport.
