Michael is passionate about improving accessibility, equality and diversity in sports and ISD offer services for all levels of sport and every budget.

How we do it

We help you make inclusion happen.


Inclusive Sport Design works closely with sport organisations wanting to embed inclusive culture and practice within their sport. We assist with inclusion strategy, policy, program design, workforce training and development and innovative projects. We will help you make inclusion part of what you do so your sport reflects the diversity of the community.


We understand the importance of building awareness, confidence and capability around inclusive practice and diversity issues. Through our education offerings, we aim to build the capacity of the sport sector at all levels to take action on inclusion. We offer industry-leading online courses, webinars and tailored workshops.


Empowering everyone in sport to take action on inclusion is core to our mission. That’s why we offer plenty of free and low-cost resources to help you on your inclusion journey, including articles, guides, videos, templates and other practical tools. Our resources are referred to and used by leading sport organisations, government agencies, universities and sport providers from around the world.


Inclusive Sport Design seeks to connect the amazing people who are out there working to make inclusion happen in sport - from local clubs to board rooms. Advancing inclusion is a team effort and we all have a role to play. ISD offers many ways to connect, share and learn and it all starts at our Community Hub.

Inclusive Sport Design acknowledges the Gundungurra and Tharawal people who are the custodians of the land where we work and live. Gundungurra and Tharawal people have strong connection to the Wingecarribee, Wollondilly and Nattai rivers through culture, dreaming and songlines. We pay respect to their elders past, present and emerging.
