As part of its ongoing commitment to Western Sydney, WestConnex is partnering with local organisations that share its sustainability values of health, safety, environment, diversity and economic development. Wests Tigers' community program is one of the most highly regarded in the NRL and WestConnex is extremely pleased to support the club's great work to make a difference for local communities.
The Australian Foundation for Disability (Afford) has partnered with the West Tigers Physical Disability Rugby League Team to help further the club’s engagement among school aged children across Sydney. Through this partnership, the Wests Tigers have developed two new schools programs focussing on children with disability. The first of these is a physical activity session for children with disability to showcase inclusion and develop functional skills and fitness. The second program focusses on celebrating differences through an anti-bullying message relating to people living with disability.
