With bars mounted to their wheelchairs, athletes dribble, pass and spin-kick an over-sized soccer ball, attempting to score more goals than their opponent. NSWPFA runs the Western Sydney powerchair football competition and provides opportunities for NSW athletes to compete on a national level at the Australian Powerchair Football Association National Championships.

Boccia Australia

Making its debut as a Paralympic sport in 1984, Boccia tests each competitor’s degree of muscle control and accuracy. Competing in wheelchairs, athletes with severe impairments throw, kick or use a ramp device to propel leather balls on a hard flat surface as close as possible to a white ball which serves as the jack (target). 

Today Boccia is a played competitively at national and international level. Boccia was originally played by athletes with cerebral palsy, but now includes athletes with other disabilities, including muscular dystrophy, which affect motor skills. Boccia is also widely played as an educational and recreational game, particularly in schools.

The 2020/21 Boccia Australia free Memberships are now available for Athletes, Coaches, Sport Assistants, Referees and Officials, and Volunteers. Becoming a member not only enables you to compete at any Boccia Australia supported event, it also helps grow our sport and protect our members.

Housing Hub

The Housing Hub is a way for people with disability to find suitable housing. We understand that finding the right house can be hard and take a long time. We want to create a community where housing seekers and housing providers work together to create a market where people enjoy choice and control.

Housing Hub hosts a library of useful information about housing options and planning your move. A great way to join the community and stay informed is to create a housing seeker profile. This is a simple process which involves you telling us what you are looking for and what is important to you. This allows the Housing Hub to customise its search and alert you to properties that might suit you.

NSW Kids in Need 

NSW Kids in Need was created when six NSW children's charities joined forces  to make a major difference in the lives of children. It doesn’t take much to make that difference, many small donations can go a long way and in-turn, spread happiness to kids who need it the most.

NSW Kids in Need Foundation is based on an absolutely minimal-cost model that strives to make a real difference in the lives of children by fundraising for six kid’s charities that includes Muscular Dystrophy NSW. "With any positive action, it's often the many little contributions, that when combined, make the biggest impact."
