Our programs and services not only benefit people who use wheelchairs for mobility – we support people with other physical disabilities such as amputations, acquired brain injury, dwarfism, neuromuscular conditions, and partial or total vision loss.
 

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.

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. 

Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association currently manage five core sports – Boccia, Goalball, Powerlifting, Wheelchair Basketball and Wheelchair Rugby

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.

Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association is a not-for-profit organisation and raise the majority of our own funding through non-government sources including donations, our Gold Choice Lottery, and corporate support.

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