The Australian Government is inviting Get Skilled Access via a closed non-competitive process to apply to deliver services under the Disability and Carers Program, Sport4All Expansion grant opportunity nationally from 2021–22 to 2022–23. Funding will be offered to one organisation as a result of this process.

The Sport4All Expansion grant opportunity is part of the Department of Social Services’ Disability and Carers Program. The program provides support to people with disabilities and carers to actively participate in community and economic life. The purpose of the program is to support the independence and economic participation of people with disability and carers by providing targeted supports.

The Sport4All program aims to increase the participation of people with disability in sport by delivering educational programs at the grassroots level to schools and local sporting clubs across Australia. In addition, the Sport4All program engages a person with disability or lived experience of disability to run the program in each local council.

The objectives of this grant opportunity are to increase sporting participation of people with disability from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD), and regional and remote communities by tailoring the current Sport4All program to be culturally and linguistically appropriate.

The intended outcomes of the grant activities are:

  • people with disability from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, CALD and regional and remote communities have increased opportunities to participate in inclusive sports and physical activities
  • reduced barriers for people with disability accessing community services.
