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.
