Launch of the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan Survey

In an effort to make football the most accessible sport in the region, the WA Football Disability Access and Inclusion Committee  in collaboration with Football Futures Foundation and Football West, has launched a comprehensive Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) survey.

Aligned with Football West’s 2023-2026 Strategic Plan, the DAIP aims to identify and address barriers faced by individuals with disabilities in the sport. This initiative underscores a commitment to inclusivity and accessibility, ensuring that everyone, regardless of ability, can enjoy and participate in football.

The success of the DAIP hinges on community involvement. The survey seeks insights and feedback from a broad range of stakeholders, including people with disabilities, parents, carers, coaches, referees, and supporters. This input will be crucial in shaping effective strategies and actions to enhance accessibility in football.

“We believe that football should be accessible to all, and the insights from this survey will help us understand the needs and challenges faced by individuals with disabilities,” said Chris Barty, member of the WA Football Disability Access and Inclusion Committee, “Our goal is to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome and valued.”

The survey is intended for individuals over the age of 18. Parents or guardians are encouraged to complete the survey on behalf of their children if necessary.
