Beach Day Out
Friday, 20 September
The Beach Day Out event is held annually during Disability Action Week. This year the even will be held at Bell Park and the beach at Emu Park. The event aims to provide a fun day at the beach for the whole community, and in particular for people with a disability who may ordinarily have difficulty in easily accessing such an event.
Importantly, the inclusive event also aims to:
• promote positive attitudes towards those with a disability;
• break down stereotypes;
• highlight access issues in the community that affect people with disabilities from easily accessing services and facilities;
• improve community support for those with a disability, by providing information, linking of services and establishing links and partnerships between agencies; and
• provide a wide range of free, inclusive activities that are engaging and fun for persons with a whole range of abilities.
Last year Beach Day Out attracted over 3500 participants!
