On Wednesday 31st March, Sutherland Shire Council, local disability services and the community came together to celebrate our local residents living with a disability and those that care for them, staging a host of activities aimed at promoting inclusiveness for all members of our community.
ShireAbility family fun day featured a range of entertainment for children, parents and carers including sports activities led by Cronulla Sharks NRL players, arts and craft, LEGO stations, inflatable games, plus demonstrations from a magician, a photo booth and more.
Civic was one of the disability service providers involved with the event this year.
Civic Crew and staff were on hand to answer questions, connect with the community and help people create Easter crafts, proudly sponsored by Civic.
Sutherland Shire Mayor Councillor Steve Simpson said the free event not only seeks to bring people of all abilities together, but to link residents with local support networks that work to enhance the wellbeing of those living with disability.
“The wellbeing of local residents is at the forefront of our community initiatives and events like this allow families to expand their resource networks and connect with key services that provide guidance and support.” Mayor Simpson said.
“There’s something for everyone in store at this event, which has been established thanks to more than 12 local disability service providers who have collaborated with Council to shine a light on ability and inclusiveness.”
