The Including You Event Tent is a quiet, safe place for people who need some respite from the noise and crowds of large events. The tent is a space for people with disabilities, their families and carers, it can also be used by people with an illness or injuries, older people, parents with prams or anyone else who would like to relax.
The tent is a collaborative initiative between Maitland City Council, Our Voice Our Choice 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.
