Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres MP today met with Northcott Penrith to raise awareness about the support and services they offer for people with disabilities and to encourage community participation for the 2013 “Don’t DIS my ABILITY” campaign.


The Don’t DIS my ABILITY campaign is now in its 10th year and has a strong tradition of pushing the boundaries, getting people talking and challenging perceptions about what people with disability can and can’t do.


“The campaign is about promoting positive perceptions about people with disability and aims to build an environment that encourages active participation in careers, leisure pursuits and social activities,” Mr Ayres said. 


“Don’t DIS my ABILITY is about changing the public view of disability and recognising people for what they do, not for their disability.” Said Mr Ayres


A highlight of the Don’t DIS my ABILITY initiative is the magazine Made You Look, which features engaging articles and personal insights from the ambassadors and other contributors.


“This year’s magazine has been made even more accessible, as you can read an interactive version in full on your smartphone or tablet device from the Don’t DIS my ABILITY website, www.dontdismyability.com.au.”  


The Don’t DIS my ABILITY campaign is an initiative of the Ageing, Disability and Home Care and is celebrated throughout November and December.
