The Sport Access Foundation (SAF) grants program aims to foster young athletes and celebrate diversity in sport.

Our goal is to ensure that young Australians living with a disability can be active and achieve their sporting goals. The Foundation provides grants for activities that help to build participation in sport and to ensure that no one is left on the sidelines.

This year the foundation received 111 applications from across the nation.

Each one was submitted by someone who is passionate about sport:

  • young athletes
  • coaches
  • volunteers
  • parents
  • club officials

Each one has demonstrated that through their individual actions and participation in sport, they are willing to challenge the way things have always been.

These efforts help to inspire those around us to be more open minded, to be more willing to change how things operate and how sporting activities are provided in our community.

As part of the application process, many provided feedback and comments about the challenges young athletes face. We will collate these to *share with Sport Australia - the Australian Sports Commission who operate within the Australian Government’s Department of Health Portfolio.

This year we have introduced more grants to ensure we can reach as many young Aussies who need assistance to access sport in their communities.

An independent selection panel is now reviewing this year’s applications. The foundation will contact those shortlisted by the end of August, with the successful recipients announced in early September.

We would like to thank all those who submitted an application. The team at SAF are proud of what you have achieved and encourage you to keep pursuing your goals – both in sport and in life!

Kind regards

Sport Access Foundation Team
