The Maitland Including You 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 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.
