  • Reported better overall health
  • Required fewer health services
  • Enjoyed better mental health
  • Maintained stronger social connections and
  • Have greater self efficacy

…compared to those South Australians who did a little or no physical activity.

Promoting the rights of South Australians living with disability, and ensuring all people enjoy the same access and inclusion experience within our community is of the utmost importance for people of all ages and backgrounds.

The Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP) 2020-2024 outlines the steps we will take over the next four years to improve outcomes for South Australians with disability, their carers and our workforce, as well as to improve accessibility of the services we both fund and deliver.

The DAIP has been developed in consultation with all areas across the Agency. Targeted consultation was sought from various key stakeholders, staff and the general public.

Actions will be embedded within our Corporate Plan to ensure delivery is achieved in line with the Agency’s Strategic Plan and the objectives of the Disability Inclusion Act 2018.

The DAIP is structured around the themes and priority areas set out in the State Disability and Inclusion Plan. In line with the State Plan commitment to remain a living document, the ORSR DAIP will remain live to ensure continued alignment and to reflect social, political and environmental changes

Delivering on the commitments made within this plan will ensure all aspects of the work that we do are considered through the lens of people who live with disability and that access and inclusion is at the forefront of our decision making.

The Government of South Australia is committed to creating an accessible and inclusive South Australia based on fairness and respect. Find out more about the State Disability and Inclusion Plan.
