Daynah’s goal is to make sport more inclusive and accessible

Dec 13, 2021 | Academy, Media

Jigsaw Melbourne trainee, Daynah H, was interviewed by the NDIS about his experience with the NDIS, and his goals for the future. 

Before joining the NDIS, Daynah didn’t have any formal disability supports in place. The NDIS has not only facilitated Daynah’s independence but has also helped Daynah continue with sport. 

Daynah loves all sport, but is particularly passionate about cricket. He plays for the Victoria Vikings, Victoria’s cricket team for players who have an intellectual disability. 

As Daynah’s confidence has grown, so has his desire to take on new challenges. Daynah decided to join the Jigsaw hub in Melbourne to develop transferable skills and gain work experience to help him land his dream job of working in recruitment for Cricket Victoria or Cricket Australia. 

“I have a passion for recruiting the next generation of cricketers with disability because I’ve been in that environment as a player. I really think it would be a perfect way to give back to the sport that’s given me so much.”
