Show Your Strength Rally

Thursday 28th October 2010 – Show Your Strength Rally 2010.
We have been invited by our peak disability body, National Disability Services (NDS) to join other community and disability organisations to show the strength of the disability sector and support the very successful Stronger Together initiative.

Stronger Together is the ADHC 10 Year Plan to expand and enhance disability services. Stage 2 is from 2010 to 2016 and is dependent upon funding being approved on Monday 18th October 2010. If funding is not approved by Government, organisations will not receive any additional funding.

Full details of the Rally will be faxed to each group home. If you would like to participate in this Rally please contact Miriana Gazivoda on 0419 427 485.
