In the Spotlight

Looking Back: Education & Employment for People of All Abilities

Can you think of a better way to kick off the start of the month, than being immersed in a collective of inspirational individuals, exploring the education and employment for people of all abilities at the February Sport and Recreation Victoria Community of Practice? Employment for people with disability is crucial to ensuring the work force we have is reflective of the communities that we work in as sport organisations.

A series of short case studies were presented, demonstrating meaningful employment in the sport and recreation sector, such as the project by Disability Sport & Recreation (DSR).

Disability Sport & Recreation has begun a new project focussing on helping a group of women with disability find employment. The project also looks at how to support sport organisations to be more inclusive and accessible through the building of capacity.

Looking Forward: Have your say on AAA Play

The Centre for Sport and Social Impact at La Trobe University is evaluating the Access for All Abilities (AAA) Play service on behalf of Sport and Recreation Victoria. They want to know what is working well, what isn’t working well, and hear any suggestions on how to improve AAA Play.

If you have used the AAA Play service, either to link a person with a disability to a sports participation opportunity, or to let people with a disability know about the AAA events and activities that your sport offers, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
