Our Services

What We Do

ATLAS Provides a Range of Services to People Living With a Disability

Leisure Buddies

A Leisure Buddy is a person interested in Leisure and Sport who can accompany you to your chosen activity. They can assist you to get involved to the level you aspire to.

They also work with the organisers of your activity to assist them to serve you appropriately, and to make their facilities accessible. Our buddies are trained to assist you to achieve remarkable results.

Direct Personal

You can use Individualised funding, respite or any other fund you have to purchase Leisure Buddy hours. Leisure buddies are here to assist you to get involved in what-ever leisure, sport and recreation activity you want to participate in (as long as it’s legal).

You may just need some assistance to connect with the right people, or you may want more intensive ongoing personal support. Our leisure buddies are able to assist you to plan for the future, and to develop the knowledge and skills you need to enjoy the benefits of being actively involved in the community.

Spin Out

Wheelchair Basketball:

We regularly run a full basketball competition where you can join a team and compete in the Geraldton Amateur Basketball Association alongside the rest of the basketball community.

The competition runs in line with the regular basketball seasons of the association. Our Leisure Buddies are able to assist you to join and participate in an existing team or you can start a new one and join in with your friends.

Hire Out & Education:

We regularly hire out the basketball wheelchairs for all sorts of events and training and education activities. You can either just hire the chairs or we can provide coaching and education sessions tailored to your requirements. Come and talk to us about your ideas and we can develop a package to bring them to life.

We can assist you with organisational development as well. You can run team building events, leadership development, and novelty sports programs.
