Independence Australia Daddo Charity Golf Day


Independence Australia would like to extend a sincere thank you to the ongoing support of the Daddo family and friends in the continued success of the annual Independence Australia Daddo Charity Golf Day.

Our 18th annual Independence Australia Daddo Charity Golf Day was held on Friday 10th November 2023 at Moonah Links on the Mornington Peninsula. This day was initially born out of the shared dream between the Daddo family and Independence Australia to see people living with a disability or other personal need receive the support needed to remain independent.


SpinChat is an initiative of Independence Australia and aims to promote the prevention and education of secondary school students about spinal cord injury. SpinChat is proudly supported by the Transport Accident Commision and secondary schools all across Victoria. Through this generous support, our SpinChat speakers can continue to ignite conversation amongst secondary school students and encourage students to consider the consequences of high risk activities and minimise the risk of injury.

Event sponsorship

Every year Independence Australia hosts a number of major events to educate the community about disability issues and raise funds to support our ongoing work.

Corporate sponsorship opportunities are available at all our major events, including the highly regarded Daddo Charity Golf Day and our Sector Leaders’ Conference. There are also great ways to get involved on a smaller scale, including product donations for our auctions and raffles.
