ATLAS Provides a Range of Services and Products to People Living with a Disability
Are you interested?
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.
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, 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.
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 whatever 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.
ATLAS also conduct customised training and education courses to assist people to advocate for improvements to access and inclusion in the community. Call us to discuss your interest area and specific education and awareness training needs.
ATLAS is committed to supporting both tourists and business to experience and create inclusive tourism experiences. We aim to work with both the travelling public and tourism operators to improve accessibility for all and expand the tourism market.
