"The lives of people with disability are often secret lives. We are routinely segregated and isolated from our non-disabled peers – we live, work and play in places which are not often frequented by those without disability. Often, we are lonely. If we do not have families, paid staff are sometimes the only people in our lives. We are shut out by barriers to participation in Australian life, and shut in when we are hidden in institutional settings."

(Report authors Samantha Connor and Ben Keely)

The Peer Connect website is for people living with disability, their families and supporters.

The website has information about having choice and control in your life, the NDIS, connecting with Peer Support Networks and getting involved with your community.

 Late in 1982, members of Wheelchair Sports and interested individuals convened a steering committee to investigate the possibility of forming an umbrella association for sport for people with disabilities. This group reflected a broader feeling that it was no longer appropriate for sport for people with disabilities to be run by welfare organisations and so be recognised as part of the mainstream sports community.

The steering committee produced a constitution and structure for the now Western Australian Disabled Sports Association (WADSA). 

Click here to see what's on:

WADSA organise a whole range of recreational events: aquatics, camps, specialised recreation, competitions, day and night activities like speedway, sports and much more.

Visit their website at to find out more about their activities and how to register.
