Dear Colleagues
ANU is committed to equity and diversity as fundamental values for our community, by providing opportunities for an inclusive and welcoming environment. Education and collaboration within our community, in the area of disability, is an important first step in improving understanding.
In recognition of International Day of People with a Disability and National Carers’ Week, I am pleased to share that the ANU is hosting a Disability & Carers’ Market Day Expo on Wednesday 18 October 2017.
This event will promote a number of local organisations offering services and support for people with a disability and their carers.
Even if you are not a carer or a person with a disability, you are encouraged to attend to improve your disability confidence and learn about the types of support available in our community. Organisations confirmed thus far include:
·         Access and Inclusion
·         Australian Network on Disability
·         Batyr
·         Deafness Resource Centre
·         Epilepsy ACT
·         HCF (providing health and wellness advice).
·         Marymead/Autism ACT and;
