Increasing public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability

International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) aims at increasing people’s awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disabilities.

In the loupe collaborated with the Sutherland Shire Council to create this short film for the inaugural ShireABILITY Film Festival, and inclusive film festival aimed at increasing awareness and acceptance.

Four organisations were represented in the short film and were able to share their commitment, leadership and stories of empowerment related to inclusion of people with disability in the community and the workforce.

Sylvanvale Garden House offers centre based programs suited to people who enjoy the company of others while being in the garden and the outdoors.

Push the Limit is an interactive workshop which allows children to experience some of the challenges of living with a disability.

CIVIC Café Engadine supports people with disability employment opportunities through work in the kitchen and front of house.

Engadine Community Services (ECS) is a not-for-profit, non-government registered charity. ECS runs a range of program/services based in health and wellbeing.

The ShireABILITY Film Festival was a fantastic success and we look forward to seeing what the council does next in this space.
