April is autism awareness month. No one wants to feel judged and unwelcome in their own communities — but many autistic people and their families experience this every day.
Glen Eira City Council wants to hear from the many voices that make up our diverse community to create a Community Vision by the community for the community. To date, more than 3,000 people have shared their thoughts on what is important to them for the future of Glen Eira.
