Who Is United Abilities

Igor wanted to make a positive impact on people. That’s why he created United Abilities, an NDIS-certified provider that helps intellectually disabled participants in the greater Adelaide area get out and get active year-round.

Growing up a competitive athlete and then spending time working for the Special Olympics, Igor Negrao discovered the amazing benefits sports can have for those living with intellectual disabilities. The opportunities for growth and community were incredible.

At United Abilities, through a combination of one-on-one support and group activities, our team of trained support workers can help your participant boost their self-esteem and self-sufficiency through a more active lifestyle. We work with participants of all ages in South Australia. No athletic background necessary: the only requirement we have is a willingness to have fun.

What Makes Us Special

We’re not just any service provider. When you team up with United Abilities, you and your participant will benefit from one of the most rewarding NDIS communities in South Australia.


You won’t find another NDIS provider that has our experience and expertise in sports and physical well-being.


Our close affiliation with the Special Olympics has allowed many of our participants to compete across the country and build memories they’ll never forget.


Every member of our staff has a minimum of Certificate III in Disability, with many earning additional certifications.


Our teams and activities introduce participants to peers from around the Adelaide area, giving them a powerful network on their NDIS journey.
