Disco for youth with disabilities

Media Release
22 July 2004

Disco for youth with disabilities

Waitakere youth with disabilities are invited to a free disco at the Kelston Community Centre on 20 August. Organised by the Council, it will run from 7.30 to 10.30pm.

The disco is designed for youth aged 13 - 20 years old with a physical disability. Able bodied friends are also welcome and mobility transport will be provided for those who require it.

Parents who wish to remain with students can do so in another room.

Consultation between the Council and Waitakere College’s Physical Disabilities unit discovered that students were reasonably pleased with Council efforts to meet the needs of disabled youth but felt unsafe and out of place at able bodied discos.

An annual plan submission resulted in $3000 set aside specially for this disco.

For more information see your local library, community centres and youth organisations, or phone Jan Brown 836 8000 extn 8514
