Disability events

Glen Eira runs a range of events for people with disabilities throughout the year. Whether you're a film buff or sports fan, a carer or a speaker, we have something for you.

Our Access and Inclusion officer is involved in a range of activities and events throughout the year, including:

  • the Disability Awareness in Schools Program, which employs people with disabilities to discuss their experiences with primary, secondary and teritary school students
  • the Sensory Friendly Film sessions - offering an environment where the sound is turned down and the light left on to create a more comfortable experience for people with autism and their families
  • Chat & Chuckle, a fortnightly social group for people with acquired brain injury to meet others, share news and views, discuss ideas and have fun
  • Carers Day, which recognises the role of unpaid carers in our community
  • International Day of People with Disability, an annual free activities day at Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre supporting people to come and try a sport and see if they like it and showcasing disability sports
