Communicare Inc. has been successful in our Driving Social Inclusion through Sport and Physical Activity application with the Department of Health to deliver sport and physical activities to vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals from targeted community groups over the next two years.

The Make Your Move program will be aimed at providing women and girls, culturally and linguistically diverse groups, people with disabilities and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with the opportunity to participate in flexible, community-based sport and physical activity projects; and increase acceptance of diversity, build inclusive communities, and assist vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals and families to develop social links through sport and physical activity.

The program will deliver six sessions per week within the school term, repeated up to three times a year in Perth South Metropolitan area as well as one school holiday program per year.

This program will work in collaboration with Multicultural Services including Communicare's Settle In program, Disability Services, Youth Services, Mental Health Services, Community Centres and other Community Services.

As an organisation we are committed to cultural diversity and social inclusion. Our vision is to celebrate cultural diversity and support people from diverse backgrounds in ways that are meaningful to them.

Make Your Move will not only contribute to our commitment and vision but also to improving outcomes to communities within the South East Perth Metropolitan region.
