What we do

“Everything we do advances the health and wellbeing of people with disability”

At GingerCloud Foundation, we want to remove the barriers experienced by young people with Autism, Aspergers and other learning and perceptual disabilities, so they can live their best life, both on and off the field.

We provide a way for ordinary Australians to experience what is awesome about these young people. Our focus is on sharing their greatness, not their limitations. We do this through our Modified Rugby Program (MRP), our Disability Inclusion Leadership Program and engagement with schools and universities.

We are inclusive
We remove barriers that prevent inclusion for our Tribe.
We are experienced
We learn from our and others’ personal experiences with disability.
We are accountable
We act with integrity and are professional, respecting the stories of people we support.
We are outcome-driven
We are committed to continual improvement

The impact we make is on those we support

For our families
“When you see them all together (MRP Players, PlayerMentors, Coaches and Assistant Coaches) it is the best feeling, such a great young team of people who all respect and encourage each other.”
Parent - Wests, 2018
For our player mentors

For our community
“The magnitude of what community and fellowship can do for young people with disability and their families has become so piercingly clear”
