Halberg Trust Sport Opportunity Programme
The Halberg Trust Sport Opportunity programme is committed to ensuring people with a disability can participate in inclusive sport and active leisure within their community
The Programme is delivered by Sport Opportunity Advisers who work within the Regional Sports Trusts located throughout New Zealand. The programme, which started in June 2000, is all about encouraging and enabling people with a disability to participate with their peers in an inclusive environment as they develop within a sporting or recreational pathway.
Integration into inclusive activities is of primary importance in the delivery of the programme. Our vision is to enable people with a disability the opportunity to be more active, more often.
