All Abilities Sports and Recreation

In 2021, East Kimberley Job Pathways launched the East Kimberley All Abilities Sports and Recreation program, to connect people with a disability to access sport and recreation activities in the East Kimberley.

The East Kimberley All Abilities Sports and Recreation program is an opportunity for people with disabilities, their families, and supporters, to engage with and enjoy community sport and recreation activities.

The program aims to support people with a disability to access sport and recreation activities within their local communities, as well as providing advocacy, linking people with their choice of sport, and, if required, providing equipment to enable participation.

Additionally, the All Abilities Sports and Recreation program aims to assist participants with building social and professional skills that can be used within a sports and recreation environment, and also transferred to other areas of life.

Check out the East Kimberley All Abilities Sports and Recreation Calendar below. If you have any enquiries about the program, or wish to register your interest, please contact Program Coordinator, Nafisa Zoeb, via email on nafisa.zoeb@ekjp.org.au.
