Welcoming Sport - Welcome Expo 2020

About Welcoming Sport

Welcoming Sport is Welcoming Australia’s overarching initiative for programs that embrace the power of sport and recreation as a vehicle for inclusion, opportunity and belonging for all members of the community – including, recently arrived migrants, refugees and people seeking asylum.

Welcoming Sport links both ends of the sporting continuum – from the grassroots to the boardroom through two initiatives; Welcome to the Game and Welcoming Clubs.

Welcome to the Game provides support for young people and families from diverse backgrounds and abilities to access sport & recreation opportunities and connect with their local community.

Welcoming Clubs provides support for clubs, codes, community organisations & local government to establish, progress and benchmark inclusive practices and engage new members.
