Rebound WA is a charitable association assisting Western Australians living with physical disability to lead fuller, more active and more connected lives. Essentially we help people to rebound from adversity.
Our aim is remove barriers – both physical and mental – so children and adults with physical disability can have the same participation opportunities as their able-bodied peers.
If you or someone in your family has a physical disability we can help you explore possibility.
Encouragement and Information – We’ve been doing this for over 60 years so we have a lot of expertise and knowledge you can tap into. We help with advice and information on anything from equipment grants, to the accessibility of public facilities, to which sport or recreational activity may suit you.
Sport and Recreation – We can provide information on a wide variety of accessible sporting and recreational activities. Whether you are interested in joining a team sport for fun, fitness and friendship, learning a new recreational activity that helps with your rehabilitation, or aiming for the highest level of elite sport – we can help you get there.
Advocacy and Education – We work collaboratively with sporting and recreational clubs and associations as well as community groups, to educate and advocate for inclusion and accessibility. To educate more people on what life is like with a physical disability we run educational experiences for schools, supply corporations and organisations with speakers and run our popular Wheelchair Challenge.
Community – Rebound WA has an active community of members who offer peer support and mentoring to you and your family. No matter what kind of physical disability you have, we can connect you with someone to talk to. Someone who will understand what you face every day, and be able to provide advice and support. Our community stays connected via social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, where we share information on social events, sporting fixtures and results and member achievements.
