Inclusive sport for women and girls.

What is it?

Supporting women and girls from culturally and linguistically diverse communities to take part in various sports to improve their physical and mental health and social connections. This project is called Count Me In Too.

We partner with sports clubs in Moreland and engage community in accessible and inclusive sports activities and programs. To date, we have supported over 600 girls and women to play sport, and many have tried sport for the first time! Activities that participants have enjoyed include tennis, cricket, lawn bowls, golf, football, netball and more.
