Inclusion WA's bimonthly newsletter
March/April 2016
Hello Everyone

Welcome to the March/April edition of Inclusion WA’s bi-monthly newsletter. This edition is packed with stories of personal achievement and welcoming communities. At Inclusion WA we spend a lot of time learning about what a good life looks like for the various people and families that we work alongside. There is no one size fits all when it comes to living a good life.

I hope that in reading the newsletter you get the sense that WA is a welcoming place to live that celebrates diversity. Also, I encourage you to check out our community corner section to find out about lots of exciting events and activities that are coming up in Perth over the next couple of months.

Bayswater Have a Go Day

The City of Bayswater in conjunction with Inclusion WA hosted their sixth Have a Go day earlier this month.

With its biggest attendance to date, the event hosted an incredible array of community clubs and groups and two Western Australia sporting ambassadors. 

Model in the making

In a brief time with the Inclusion WA program, Courtney has developed some amazing modelling skills and her confidence has truly blossomed.  

There is a massive gap and underrepresentation of people with a disability in the modelling industry.  Up until recently advertising, media and modelling were unheard of aspirations for anybody recognised as 'living with a disability'. With some support, Courtney and others are aspiring to be recognised in this industry. 

The 'new' Meeting Place

The Meeting Place has been an Inclusion WA facilitated program for over 8 years. In an aim to bring socially isolated people together through weekly recreational catch ups, it plays an important role in the lives of those who participate.

As we come well into 2016 the club now embarks on the final stages of their transition from an Inclusion WA supported club to an independently run and facilitated program. 


Inclusion WA announced as finalists in 2016 Community Service Excellence Awards.

Inclusion WA is excited in anticipation of the upcoming Community Service Excellence Awards.

Being nominated for two awards highlights the fantastic work the team has committed to achieving whilst working alongside a number of communities.

The only place to work.

Working in the disability sector for over thirty years, Graham tells us of his experiences and how he got to where he is today with Inclusion WA.

Community Corner

Despite the cold front coming on, there are a number of exciting and inclusive events happening throughout Perth in the coming months. With the majority of listed events FREE to participate, there are so many opportunities available for everyone to get involved in their community. 

From drumming circles to sensory film screenings, lazy Sunday afternoons listening to jazz to simple swap markets (no money required!) there really is so many opportunities to try something new and just enjoy what's on offer!
