As part of the National Sport Plan (Sport 2030), the Australian Government committed to sport and physical activity becoming more accessible to people with a disability. In September 2017, the Australian Sports Commission brought together leaders from across the disability sport sector to co-design a shared vision for the future of disability sport in Australia. From this workshop, the NSOD Project was created, and an Oversight Committee was established to guide the delivery of 16 key recommendations for the sector.
Since 2019, National Sporting Organisations for people with a Disability (NSOD’s) have collaborated to create a collective vision to represent the needs of individuals with a disability, impairment, or limitation throughout Australia.
The NSOD’s formed a key representative agency for sport and physical activity for people with a disability – the Australian Sporting Alliance for People with a Disability, ASAPD.

Your donation will go towards providing financial assistance and support to enable children with a disability to participate in sporting activities. Every dollar goes direct to the grant recipients to help with the cost of their sport, including modified equipment, carer costs, transport and fees.
