AAA Play: Connecting people with disabilities to sporting activities in Melbourne
Operated by Reclink Australia, Access for All Abilities provides Australia’s only first-point-of call service connecting people with a disability to sports and recreational opportunities in Melbourne, Victoria.
Regular physical activity is crucial in maintaining a healthy body, a sense of wellbeing and promoting quality of life. Whether it’s basketball or swimming, fencing or cricket, beginner or aspiring paralympian; Access for All Abilities is, as the name suggests, committed to being an ‘opportunity broker’ for every person, no matter what the disability, to benefit from participating in sport and recreation.
Providing a crucial entry point for people who are seeking out a sports or recreation connection, Access for All Abilities Play will work with the enquirer to identify what activity they wish to be involved in, what their disabilities are and where they are located. Drawing on a network of State Sporting Associations (SSAs), active community clubs, local governments and disability specific sport and recreation providers, AAA Play can link each person with a suitable sport or recreation activity, in a timely manner.
There are multiple ways in which people can contact AAA Play – email, via 1800 AAA VIC, through this very website and even live chat online during business hours. Being an available and easily contactable source of information and referral is a fundamental component of Access for All Abilities. AAA Play want to make communicating with them as easy possible – regardless of our visitors’ preferred way to find information.
Reclink Australia is proud to be providing AAA Play in metropolitan Melbourne in conjunction with our partners thanks to the support of the Victorian State Government.
