Shepparton Access, Greater Shepparton City Council, the council’s Disability Advisory Committee and Shepparton Sailability have organised Monday’s International Day of People with Disability event.
Community members are invited to celebrate International Day of People with Disability at a special event in Shepparton next week.
Greater Shepparton City Council access and inclusion officer Louise Dwyer said the United Nations-sanctioned day aimed to promote an understanding of people with disability and encourage support for their dignity, rights and wellbeing.
She said council’s Disability Advisory Committee members would host a free barbecue in partnership with Shepparton Sailability, which would give people the opportunity to sail on Victoria Park Lake.
‘‘It’s a great opportunity for bringing together individuals, businesses and community organisations to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions, skills and achievements of people with disability,’’ Ms Dwyer said.
‘‘There’ll also be free health checks, information sharing and entertainment.’’
‘‘This event is a good opportunity for people who have any concerns about access and inclusion in and around Greater Shepparton to bring them to the committee’s attention.’’
The celebration will take place at Victoria Park Lake, near the Visitor Information Centre, from noon to 2
