Everyone is invited to join in on the fun, as there will be a range of activities suitable for all to enjoy. International Day of People with Disability (3 December) is an annual celebration to increase awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with a disability.
Mayor of Latrobe City, Councillor Kellie O'Callaghan looked forward to celebrating International Day of People with Disability with a range of fun events. "Council has a commitment towards ensuring our community is a great place to live, work and visit for people with disability, their friends, families and carers. Celebrating International Day of People with Disability supports our diverse community and is a key part of our Living Well Latrobe and our Disability Access and Inclusion Plans."
"The day also provides an opportunity to recognise and thank the Disability Access and Inclusion Community Engagement Group for their contribution. By sharing their lived experience, the council is able to improve our services and programs. We hope to see many of our community members join in the celebrations and perhaps try a new activity," said the Mayor.
