Join us for Access Summer Festival 2023 – a week of events and fun for all to celebrate International Day of People with Disability in Singleton!
From 24 November - 7 December, Singleton Council is supporting a wide range of community activities and events for those of all ages and abilities to enjoy.
By acknowledging International Day of People with Disability, we can take action to remove barriers for the millions of Australians living with disability, starting with positive change in our own community.
Together, we can challenge perceptions about disability and promote inclusive and respectful attitudes and behaviours.
We encourage everyone in the community, no matter their ability, to join in on the 2023 Access Summer Festival events below.
