Georges River launches disability heroes event

Georges River Council is launching a new event to celebrate the resilience and strength of people living with a disability in the area.

Coinciding with the International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD) on Sunday 3 December, Council says the ‘Celebrating Localability’ event aims to honour those within Georges River living with a disability, who exemplify determination and inspire others.

“Our community thrives on diversity, strength, and unity. Council is dedicated to fostering a more inclusive society where every individual’s contribution is acknowledged and celebrated,” said Mayor, Sam Elmir.

“Celebrating Localability underscores Council’s commitment to community engagement and supports our ongoing work to advance inclusion through a robust disability and inclusion action plan.”

Nominations for ‘Celebrating Localability’ are now open and close on 22 November.

Community members are being encouraged to nominate their local heroes across both youth and general categories.

A morning tea will be held on 1 December 2023 at Hurstville Library revealing the winners.
