Connecting Through Sport

The Connecting Through Sport program is a collaborative initiative with a range of sports, community and tertiary partners funded by the Department of Health. The goals of the program are to increase participation of refugees, migrants, international students, and women in sport, while building the capacity of sports and community clubs to be more inclusive and welcoming of diversity.

RISE Sport’s Connecting Through Sport program partners include: Multicultural Australia, AFL Queensland, Brisbane Lions, Football Queensland, Brisbane Roar, Netball Queensland, Queensland Firebirds, University of Queensland, and Welcoming Australia; along with over 30 sports and community clubs across South East Queensland.
