We enable by making it easy to become involved and by providing funding.

Funding Boost for dsport

Funding Boost for dsport

dsport are pleased to announce a funding boost from the Sport New Zealand Tu Manawa fund and Lottery Grants Covid-19 Well-being fund.

The Tu Manawa fund, administered by Sport Wellington, provides funding for programmes or projects delivering play, active recreation, and sport experiences for tamariki and rangatahi. These may be new or already operating. Some groups who are more at risk of missing out or being less active, including those living with a disability.

Sport Wellington have partnered with dsport to provide a range of opportunities for disabled young people in our region aimed at increasing participation. Opportunities include our highly successful Youth Group.

Lottery Grants have also come on board with dsport recognising New Zealand's obligations under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Disabled People and the lack of opportunities available in sport and active recreation.


dsport thanks Sport New Zealand, Sport Wellington and Lottery Grants Board for their belief in us and helping us make a difference in the lives of disabled New Zealanders through sport.


Kids Get Active Days

Kids Get Active Days

In partnership with Peke Waihanga Artificial Limb Service, dsport delivers the Kids Get Active days. This initiative started a few years ago in Wellington and we are now delivering across the country. 

The aim of the 1-day programme is to give young amputees an activity day, based around an athletics fundamental skills, help them to meet other young amputees, connect with local disability sports organisations, and have a fun day out.

It's also a great opportunity for family and whanau to network and make new connections.

This summer season we have delivered the programme in Hawkes Bay, Palmerston North, Auckland, Dunedin and Christchurch. We are planning on a final event in Tauranga in late summer.
