Endeavour Foundation in Gladstone is celebrating Disability Action Week (September 9–15) with a big Dance Party for dozens of people with a disability and their families, carers, supporters and stakeholders this Friday 7th September.
There will be approximately 150 people at the Meteors Sports Club with people coming from Endeavour Foundation services in Gladstone and Rockhampton and also from other disability organisations.
The event heralds the start of a week which aims to encourage positive attitudes towards people with a disability and to promote improved access to the wider community.
Learning & Lifestyle provides opportunities for people with a disability to enhance their independence, confidence, self esteem, interaction skills and life choices and the Coordinator in Gladstone, Tanya Taylor, says that the service users are excited about the forthcoming Dance Party.
“It’s going to be a big night out for us all and one which the service users have been looking forward to for weeks,” she said.
“This is a chance to catch up with other people from different areas of Endeavour Foundation such as our commercial enterprise in Gladstone, and to meet people from other disability sector organisations.
“Everyone has played their part in making this event one of the highlights of our social calendar so it will be a really exciting night and a great way to start Disability Action Week.”
The over 18s, alcohol-free event will be attended by a number of guests and dignitaries and includes a free sausage sizzle as well as the chance to dance into the evening.
