Charity Overview

Special Olympics Australia (SOA) provides opportunities for people with an intellectual disability to achieve their personal best through weekly training and regular sports competitions in communities across Australia.

People with an intellectual disability are one of the most marginalised groups in Australia, routinely challenged by low expectations and negative attitudes. SOA demonstrates and celebrates what people with an intellectual disability can achieve and opens powerful doors to help these athletes make friends, develop social skills and build self-confidence.
