About Next Step Foundation


Every year in Australia 20,000 children are born with some form of disability. We help children achieve their potential through harnessing the unifying force of soccer and promoting inclusive practices.

Our soccer programs are tailored to meet children and family’s unique needs focusing on developing relationships with communities, building confidence and empowering parents.

The Next Step Foundation therefore exists to remove the barriers to participation in sport of children 3.5 to 9 years; unlocking their potential, building confidence and social inclusion.
