FORBES SHIRE COUNCIL AND CURRAJONG TEAM UP FOR IDPwD ON DECEMBER 3
FORBES Shire Council and Currajong Disability Services have teamed up with other NDIS providers to recognise International Day of People with Disability on December 3 with a series of events at the Forbes Memorial Pool. It is the second time in as many years both groups have come together to stage this key event.
“We are extremely happy to have Currajong involved again,” said Sarah Williams of Forbes Shire Council.
“Last year was such an outstanding success with the coverage second to none.
“So it made sense to do it all again.”
The event will not just be a celebration of people with a disability but also a chance for other providers and organisations to connect and share experiences and ideas.
“We are really excited about it and have some great things planned,” said Sarah.
IDPwD is a United Nations sanctioned day that is celebrated internationally. It aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.
The Australian Government has been supporting IDPwD since 1996 and provides funds to promote and raise awareness of the day around Australia.
