Health is a basic human right. Everything we do is to help Victorians with disability live happier, more active lives.
We are working to make sure Victorians with disability have equal opportunities to take part in the sport and recreation activities they want to participate in.
Our vision, mission and values
A community where there is access and equity for all
To provide and promote positive health outcomes for people with a disability, through participation in sport and recreation
Access, Equity, Respect
We work with:
People with disability to find a sport or activity they enjoy
Sports clubs, program providers and venues to make sure there are activities to do
Schools to raise awareness about disability and to teach children about inclusion
Government so that the voice of people with disability is heard
We are a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission, registered Community Access Planner and Community Group Program Provider with the Transport Accident Commission and state sporting association. Thanks to the generous donations and support of the community, we can continue to make healthy choices easy choices for all Victorians.
In 1962, the ParaVics Sports Club was formed to help a group of eight athletes with disability compete in national and international sporting competitions. We are proud to be the birthplace of the Victorian Paralympic movement.
Since then, we have grown to help Victorians from the grassroots players to elite athletes, play and compete in the sports they love.
For more than 50 years, we have been able to help Victorians with disability get active thanks to the generous donations and support of the Victorian community.
