Count Me in Project

Disability Awareness Week 2014

The City of South Perth proudly supported Disability Awareness Week 2014.  

An information resource has been developed by the City based on the 2014 theme, MAKING THE INVISIBLE, VISIBLE.

The production of this resource means you have quick and easy basic access to knowledge about a range of disabilities and conditions that you may not have considered before.

Project background

The Count Me In Project is a community-building project, promoting inclusive communities and facilitating participation in community life for people with disability within the City of South Perth.

The project is aimed at supporting a variety of people in the local community to join and participate in community activities.

This information resource will be periodically added to as community groups and organisations provide information about their accessible activities. It provides links to activities and memberships within the City that are accessible and welcoming of people with a disability.

It is intended as a guide to assist people with a disability and/or their supporters to find and try a variety of recreational and inclusive activities that are available within the City of South Perth.

As well as the Inclusive Activity Guide below, there is a wide range of accessible venue and activity information available at You’re Welcome Access WA www.accesswa.com.au.

Looking to join a club or recreation activity that welcomes all people, where disability is not a barrier to being included? Joining in is a natural step to leading a healthy life for all people and the City of South Perth is here to help you get started!

1 in 5 Australians live with disability and many more support people with a disability. Step by step we break down barriers to inclusion to make joining in fun and easy.

Step 1

  • Think about what type of activities you have done before or have always wanted to do - dare to challenge yourself!

Step 2

  • Do your research - have a look at the list of activities below, in your local newspapers or online; and
  • Talk to your friends and family - ask what people around you are doing; not only could they provide you with some great ideas, they might be able to help get you on your way.

Step 3

  • Think about the things that you might need help with to join in - money, equipment, transport, etc.; and
  • Don't be afraid to pick up the phone. The more information you have before joining the more comfortable you will feel when you get there.

Step 4

  • Decide what you would like to do and make a booking! 

Step 5

  • Arrive on time, ditch the nerves and get excited;
  • Be friendly and socialise; and 
  • Enjoy yourself!

If you are running a recreation or hobby based program that is accessible and welcoming of all people and you would like to add your details to this list, email the City of South Perth Community Development Officer at enquiries@southperth.wa.gov.au or phone 9474 0777.
