Celebrate Social Inclusion Week this weekend!

All week Netball NSW has been celebrating Social Inclusion Week – an initiative all about connecting local communities, workmates, family and friends in order to build and strengthen relationships and networks, addressing isolation and exclusion by supporting people who may be unable to help themselves.

We’ve shown a spotlight on just some of the amazing work the Sports Development team are doing in the community, particularly working with Indigenous communities, those with limited abilities, and engaging Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) groups.

As we approach the final days of Social Inclusion Week (Saturday 22 to Sunday 30 November) Netball NSW would like to inform our community of a fantastic event taking place tomorrow, Saturday 29 November, on the outskirts of our soon-to-be new home, Sydney Olympic Park.

The Festival of All Abilities is on tomorrow, Saturday 29 November, at Newington Armory Wharf from 8am to 11am AEST – a free event as part of Social Inclusion Week.

Sponsored by our dear friends at DOOLEYS Catholic Club – Lidcombe, a Walk, Ride, Roll or Run event will take place from 8am and will feature Paralympic Gold Medalist Louise Sauvage OAM as guest speaker, as well a theatrical performances from the Blue Mountains ensemble, The Arcade Circus as well as the Special Olympics dancers.

Along with the Walk, Ride, Run or Roll, the Festival will include a BBQ breakfast and Interactive sports demonstrations from Wheelchair Sports NSW – plus, cyclists can also get a free bike health check from Park Bikes.

So get down to Newington Armory Wharf tomorrow and have some fun with family and friends while showing your support for Social Inclusion Week!
