Grant Overview

The Para-sport Equipment fund is a joint initiative of Paralympics Australia and Sport Australia, supported by Paralympics Australia’s sponsors and donors.

Crucially, it is designed to provide opportunities for Australians with disabilities to participate and compete in Para-sport by addressing some of the most significant challenges faced by Para-athletes and programs. These include, the costs associated with obtaining Para-sport equipment, which in many cases must be customised for the participant.

Delivered in collaboration with Paralympics Australia’s key stakeholders, the Para-sport Equipment fund  aims to offer a range of equipment access solutions for Para-athletes and participation programs. This will enable more people with a disability to participate in Para-sport.

Finally, the primary focus of the Para-sport Equipment fund is to support individuals and programs at the entry participation level. However Para-athletes and programs with a focus of higher levels within the pathway may also be considered.
