UCW celebrates Disability Awareness Week

This week is Disability Awareness Week, with International Day of People with Disability celebrated on Thursday 3 December.

UnitingCare West CEO Sue Ash AO as well as managers, staff and clients from our disability services attended the National Disability Services (NDS) WA lunch in celebration of International Day of People with Disability on Thursday 3 December at Crown Perth.

The theme for the event was ‘Inclusion Matters: access and empowerment of people of all abilities’.

To celebrate Disability Awareness Week UnitingCare West’s Great Southern Service is holding workshops for people in the local community living with disability.

Participants have made a wide range of percussion instruments including shakers, gongs and drums!

It all culminates with an event in the Albany Town Square this Friday 4 December where participants will perform with their instruments for the public!
