With the support of volunteers, we provide an environment which focuses on what people with an intellectual disability can do rather than what they can’t, allowing them to develop physical fitness, build self-esteem, demonstrate courage and make friends. We also provide pathways for competition ranging from state to national and international competition.
The Information Access Group
We make documents easy to read and websites easy to use. We work with government, community and disability organisations to help them communicate more effectively. One of our specialities is Easy Read – a great tool for communicating with people with intellectual disability.
