The Accessibility Tent provides a safe and welcoming space for people with disabilities, their families and carers at events. Inside the tent there are a range of items for ‘Free Hire’ such as vision aids, communication cards, sensory tools and ‘sensory tents’ designed specifically for kids.

The Accessibility Tent is a collaborative initiative between Council, Ability Links NSW and local volunteers. It is staffed by people who understand the value of inclusion and play a role in raising awareness amongst the broader community of the needs and challenges faced by people with disability, their families, friends and carers.

If you would like to know more, or you are interested in using the Accessibility Tent at your next event, contact Ability Links on (02) 4905 0700 or at [email protected].
