Disability service provider What Ability has taken insurer AAMI on board as a partner.
Suncorp Group insurance product CEO Lisa Harrison, said the partnership further cemented AAMI’s strong credentials in supporting community initiatives.
“I have been fortunate to personally witness the incredible work that the What Ability team do for people living with disability, and the positive impact this has on participants and their families,” she said. “AAMI has a proud history of supporting community programs and initiatives that spearhead powerful and positive change.”
What Ability founder, Steve Dresler, believes sport has the power to change the world and athletes are key to breaking down these current barriers.
“Through this generous support from AAMI, we can bolster our community work and bring new opportunities to life such as the What Ability Day to AAMI Park and Suncorp Stadium next year,” he said.
Some of What Ability’s support workers are professional and semi-professional athletes that include Maddy Proud (NSW Swifts), Angus Bell (Wallabies), Lauren Cheatle (Sydney Sixers) Heath Chapman and Sean Darcy (Fremantle Dockers), and a number of Manly Sea Eagles players, Tom Trbojevic, Jake Trbojevic, Ben Trbojevic, Sean Keppie and Karl Lawton.
What Ability is active in NSW, Qld, Victoria and WA, with plans to expand in SA and New Zealand in 2023.
