Community to celebrate International Day of People with Disability

Local area co-ordinator for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Dean Bright, will be the guest speaker at Bland Shire Council’s International Day of People with Disability celebrations on Friday 8 December.

A senior manager for Intereach Murrumbidgee and Lower Far West Regions, Mr Bright will deliver valuable insight into the NDIS and the changes currently occurring in the industry and local area.

Representatives from Bland Shire Home and Community Care (HACC) will also be in attendance to discuss individual needs with potential new clients.

As well as providing valuable information, International Day of People with Disability is also a celebration of people with a disability and Council is encouraging all members of the community to join the celebration by attending the free morning tea in the Council Chambers at 10.30am.

The event will also feature the presentation of access awards to some of the businesses and community groups who have undertaken initiatives to improve access during 2017.
