Premiers Active April
Active April is about getting Victorians more active, more often. That means ALL Victorians. So we’re spreading the word about the fantastic work done by the Access for All Abilities, First Point of Call Service.
Operated by Reclink Australia, The Access for All Abilities (AAA) First Point of Call Service is Melbourne’s only community service committed to connecting people with disabilities to sport and recreational activities in Melbourne.
Program Manager Luke O’Connor says:
“Physical activity is a vital part of a well-balanced life. Our goal is to make it easy for all people, regardless of their physical ability to experience the positive effects of active sport and recreation, without barriers.”
Reclink Australia prides itself on providing the First Point of Call Service for Victorians with a disability, keen to build regular and fun physical activity into their lives.
The First Point of Call Service works with 25 State Sporting Associations, local community clubs, local governments and disability specific sport and recreation organisations to provide opportunities for people with a disability. It’s all about trying to improve the health and wellbeing of as many people with a disability as possible through greater community connection and healthy activities.
From lawn bowls to wheelchair basketball, there are opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to get more active, more often with AAA.
AAA is always on the lookout for organisations wanting to organise events. Plus, it’s easy to find existing activities near you. Follow the links below for more information.
On the very first morning of Active April, Premier Denis Napthine said:
“Premier’s Active April provides a terrific incentive to get active and create healthy exercise habits…from taking a walk, to riding a bike, you name it.”
We’re proud to promote the work of the Access for All Abilities program and assist those with a disability to increase their physical activity.
