About Us

We help community sports clubs and schools build the curiosity, skills and confidence to include people with disability when, where, and how they choose. Sport4All is a national award-winning program brought to life through a collaboration between the Australian Government, the Australian Sports Commission, and former Australian of the Year, Dylan Alcott’s consultancy, Get Skilled Access. Our purpose is to drive a positive change in grassroots sport, ensuring that everyone can enjoy the benefits of sport when, where, and how they choose.

Sport4All is dedicated to enhancing inclusion in sports by empowering local sporting clubs, schools, and communities to embrace diversity and create opportunities for people with disability.

Created by Get Skilled Access, a Disability-Owned Business Enterprise (DOBE), meaning the Sport4All program is managed by people with disability and people with lived experience of disability
