Play by the Rules
“7 Pillars of Inclusion”
Sport Inclusion Australia uses the “7 Pillars of Inclusion” as a framework for developing an approach to inclusion. The “7 Pillars of Inclusion” was developed by Play by the Rules and is freely available for organisations to use to help identify strengths and weaknesses in their approach to inclusion across all population groups. The 7 Pillars (Access, Attitude, Choice, Partnerships, Communication, Policy and Opportunity) provides an excellent starting point for NSOs to help identify their goals for inclusion of people with an intellectual disability in their sport.
The NSIA acknowledges ‘Play by the Rules’ for allowing the NSIA to utilise the “7 Pillars of Inclusion” to assist in the development of the alliance.
