Parafed Wellington
Inspire, Enable, Achieve

About Us


Parafed Wellington (previously known as Wellington Paraplegic and Physically Disabled Association  Inc.) is a non-profit organisation managed by a board of elected volunteers. 

Our  goal is to provide or facilitate sporting, recreation or leisure opportunities for our members. 


Supporting sport and active leisure for people with physical  disabilities

For many people with a physical disability it can be difficult to join in or  participate in a sport or leisure activity of their own choice. Parafed  Wellington can make it easier for members to  achieve that goal.

Parafed Wellington recognises the "No Exceptions" policy and is an advocate  and facilitator for members with disabilities to  have access to sporting and recreational activities. Parafed Wellington is  committed to providing assistance and resources, including funding assistance  for equipment.

Some of our programmes are integrated with mainstream sports and we have  developed ongoing partnerships with many able bodied sports organisations.
