WheelTalk program

Have you considered a training or education program for your sport club, community group or school?

WheelTalk is a fantastic interactive program delivered by Victorians with disability who are actively involved in sport and recreation. Participants get the chance to hear unique stories of lived disability as well as play up to an hour of Wheelchair AFL, Wheelchair Basketball or Wheelchair Rugby.

The Y has proudly partnered with Disability Sport and Recreation as a key partner in the Disability Sport and Recreation Hub, which means we can provide the WheelTalk program to Boroondara community groups and organisations at a reduced rate.
