Inclusion Through Sport – Titan’s Sponsorship
This year, Sylvanvale Foundation entered into an exciting partnership with the Sutherland Titans Football Club.
The Titans cater for junior and senior players with disability from the Sutherland Shire, St George and other areas.
The club is the embodiment of inclusion, being built on the notion of football for all.
Each week, the Titans play in mainstream competitions against teams with a bye, who have a week off from their regular competition.
Titans players are encouraged to play independently but, where necessary, buddies accompany them on the field, to facilitate full participation in the game. The buddies are volunteers from the community – giving families the opportunity to take a break and cheer from the sidelines.
Sylvanvale Foundation’s sponsorship helped the Titans with program costs including equipment and uniforms.
Our new partnership is the result of our shared vision for inclusion of people with disability in the community. It reflects the way that sport has the unique ability to bring people together and nurtures a society that gives everyone a sense of belonging.
