What will you do as a Community Champion?

Using your lived experience you will work towards increasing the knowledge, understanding and skills of community organisations, businesses, clubs and community members which will improve the opportunities people with disability are provided with in their community. 

As a community champion, you could be working with a variety of people. This could include (but not limited to):

  • Local sports clubs
  • Committee and advisory groups
  • Local Government
  • Local shopping centres
  • Hospitals
  • Community groups
  • Private organisations- eg. cafes and restaurants

Each ‘Community Champion activity’ will look different:

  • It may be a monthly formal committee meeting
  • It may be a one off walk through a community building pinpointing access improvements
  • It may be a phone call providing feedback to a local shopping center
  • It may be an informal conversation with a local soccer club about ways to mainstream the disability specific soccer program
