Endeavour Foundation is celebrating International Day of People With Disability (IDPWD) and reinforcing 60-year-old connections in Sydney, as proud sponsors of the national IDPWD event, Playability, at Five Dock.
The fun-packed free family event at Livvi’s Place Inclusive Playground in Timbrell Park on December 3 is being jointly hosted by Touched by Olivia Foundation and Children with Disability Australia (CDA).
Endeavour Foundation is proud to be associated with this wonderful celebration, at an award-winning play space which was one of the first in Australia to address the needs of people of all abilities in a play environment.
It’s a little-known fact that Endeavour Foundation was established 60 years ago with the support and guidance of a New South Wales association supporting people with intellectual disability.
Playability visitors will be invited to make their mark on Livvi's Place with the opportunity to decorate a hand tile that will make a lasting legacy at the playground.
As a national event for IDPWD, Playability is funded by the Australian Government with support from Nican. As well as major sponsors Endeavour Foundation, the event has been generously sponsored by the City of Canada Bay, Canada Bay Club, Warwick Williams, Touched by Olivia Foundation and CDA.
Stephanie Gotlib, Executive Officer of Children with Disability Australia, says, “International Day of People with Disability is not only an opportunity to celebrate the ability of people with disability but also to increase awareness of disability issues in the community and break down the barriers. Inclusive communities are better communities.”
“Today we celebrate disability in a community which typifies what inclusion is all about,” says John Perkins from the Touched by Olivia Foundation.
From animal petting zoos to the circus, Lego workshops and craft, there is an activity for everyone. Entertainment includes the superhero stage show and special Olympic dancers.
Having spread throughout Queensland since our inception in 1951, Endeavour Foundation re-entered the NSW scene in recent years and saved the jobs of almost 500 people with disabilities, by taking over a financially-troubled disability enterprise group in Western Sydney.
Endeavour Foundation staff members will erect a marquee at Playability to let families and young people with disabilities know about the employment and training opportunities available at Endeavour Foundation Industries in Castle Hill, Seven Hills and Mt Druitt.
