City counting on your support
LOCAL residents are encouraged to count everybody in.
The Count Me In project aims to increase participation in community life within the City of South Perth for people with disabilities.
The City has created an information resource and activity database that will be updated as community groups and organisations provide information and updates about their accessible activities.
The resource is intended as a guide to assist people with a disability, their friends, family and carers find a variety of recreational and inclusive activities available within the area.
City of South Perth Deputy Mayor Glenn Cridland said the City was working towards creating a place where all people feel welcome.
“The Count Me In project provides opportunities for people with disabilities to explore new recreational, sporting and social interests within the City of South Perth,” he said.
The resource is available at www.southperth.wa.gov.au/Ser- vices/Count-Me-In.
Hard copy versions will be distributed to disability service providers throughout the City in the next couple of months.
