Getting around in Canberra:
Disability transport options
Date: Thursday 18 February 2016
:T Time: 7pm to 8.30pm
Venue: Large Meeting Room, SHOUT Office, Building 1, Pearce Community Centre, Collett Place, Pearce ACT
A seminar will outline some of the transport programs, assistance and services available for people with disability and others who need assistance. Leading providers and advocates will canvas ways you can get out and about in Canberra if you have a disability, a chronic illness or are ageing.
Come and hear about your transport options from:
- Tom Valentine, Team Leader, Flexible Transport Office;
- Robert Altamore and Craig Wallace from People With Disabilities ACT;
- Fergus Nelson, Chief Executive Officer, Just Better Care;
- Jane Thompson, Policy Manager, COTA (Council on the Ageing) ACT; and
- Other providers and organisations
PWDACT Access Campaign manager Craig Wallace said “it’s really timely to talk about transport options for people with limited mobility given the National Disability Insurance Scheme rollout along with the news that Canberra’s population is set to hit 400,000 due, in part, to people aged 65 and over being the strongest growing segment of the territory's population”
The session is hosted by People with Disabilities ACT and is part of a series of seminars for people with chronic conditions run by Self Help Organisations United Together. The seminar is free and all welcome to attend.
