About Us

dsport (previously known as Parafed Wellington) is a charity managed by a board of elected volunteers.

Our vision is for Wellington to be a diverse and inclusive region.

dsport is underpinned by the principles of inspire, enable, achieve.

We inspire disabled people to believe in themselves.  To aspire to being involved in sport and active recreation.  To dream.

We enable disabled people to get into sport and active recreation.  We don’t believe in can’t.  Rather how can we.  How can we make this fun and make this work?   We persevere and we build strength collectively.

But more importantly, our members achieve.  They overcome adversity, find work-arounds and creative solutions to achieve.  And for some, they will achieve their dreams.
