State Office comprises of 8 employees, 1 consultant and 2 volunteers. The role of the State Office is to manage the continuity of RDA services throughout SA and to foster and promote the integration of people with disabilities into community equestrian activities. It does this through providing governance, resources, the provision of support to it’s affiliated centres and acts as a formal authority.
Our vision is to remain innovative and to continue to provide opportunities for people with a disability to enjoy a sense of achievement, quality of life improvement, personal goal attainment and development of their life skills though engaging in our equestrian related activities. We are also committed to creating a safe, fair and inclusive environment for everyone involved.
