About the project

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

Our purpose 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, 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.

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, cerebral palsy, dwarfism, spinal and neuromuscular conditions, and partial or total vision loss.


We manage Wheelchair Basketball, Wheelchair Rugby, Boccia, Goalball and Powerlifting programs in Queensland, and provide accessible and inclusive rehabilitation and fitness services at The Gym at our head office in Bowen Hills.


Please make a tax deductible donation today and support those living with a disability in Queensland.
