As a reg­is­tered dis­abil­ity provider, there will be plenty of in­for­ma­tion about sup­port pro­grams and in­clu­sive ac­tiv­i­ties.

Shire pres­i­dent Paul Omodei said he en­cour­aged the com­mu­nity to come along to this in­clu­sive event, learn about what in­no­va­tive dis­abil­ity ser­vices and sup­port are avail­able and to en­joy this im­por­tant day which is cel­e­brated in­ter­na­tion­ally.

The Can­dance dance troupe will per­form at Man­jimup Well­ness and Respite Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Mon­day.
