Corporate profile

Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association has been helping Queenslanders with a disability to lead active, healthy lives and achieve their sporting dreams since 1977.

We are Queensland’s peak body for sport, recreation and fitness for people with a physical disability or vision impairment. Our mission is to enhance the lives of people with a disability through community engagement and education, sport and healthy activity.

We support people with a range of disabilities including:

  • acquired brain injury
  • amputations
  • cerebral palsy
  • dwarfism
  • multiple sclerosis
  • muscular dystrophy
  • spina bifida
  • spinal cord injury
  • other neuromuscular and orthopaedic conditions
  • vision impairment (partial or total vision loss)

Some of the ways we support our members with a disability are by:

  • providing sport and recreation, fitness and rehabilitation programs and services delivered by our staff and experienced volunteers; and
  • linking members with other sport and healthy activity providers who are committed to including people with a disability in their programs and services

We also play a vital role in the community, educating people about sport and healthy activity for people with a disability, and encouraging people with a disability to get active.

We are a not-for-profit organisation and raise the majority of our own funding through non-government sources including donations, our Gold Choice Art Union, and corporate support.

Our head office is in Brisbane and we have services staff in the Townsville and Mackay regions.
