International Day of People with a Disability


We’re celebrating International Day of People with a Disability again this year.

Like last year, we will produce a calendar of events to promote activities held across the Illawarra (Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama and Shoalhaven). The calendar will cover events held between Monday 21 November to Friday 9 December 2016. Events will reflect the interests and resources of participating organisations.

Each participating organisation will be responsible for the coordination and management (including costs) of their event / activity and will be required to maintain public liability insurance to the value of $10,000,000.

To have your event listed in the calendar, please complete the attached form and return it, with a copy of your Public Liability Insurance by 23 September 2016.

This year we will be including some pictures in the calendar so if you have a photograph or image that you would like promoted alongside your event, please include an electronic copy of this this along with a completed consent form from indicating that you have consent from all the people photographed/ included in the image for inclusion in the calendar.

Like previous years the calendar will be produced by Shellharbour Council and printed by Wollongong Council.

Illawarra Interagency 2016

Thanks to Terri’s great organisational skills we are ready to rock and roll with the Illawarra Interagency for 2016.

To celebrate we have couple of things for you to do before the end of the year:

  1. put the dates below in your diary, you will note that we have decided to stick to one location for meetings in 2016, Shellharbour Stocklands Community Room. We are hoping this will provide for more consistency and less confusion.
  2. subscribe to the Interagency newsletter, this is the tool we use to update you with information about the Interagency ie give you meeting reminders, training and workshops etc. To subscribe click here

Thank you all for another great year with the Illawarra Interagency and we look forward to seeing you all in 2016.
