City of Port Phillip Council is holding a ‘Water Inclusion Forum’ as part of their Sport and Recreation Calendar of Events.

The session will give Clubs ideas and insights into what can be barriers to inclusion from sport and what has worked to include people in sport with a focus on the water and foreshore.    

Our guest speakers are;
 
Tim Ryan, Chief Executive Officer, Lord Somers Camp and Power House
Amanda Lawrie-Jones, Disability Inclusion Consultant, Accessible Action
Laura Jenkins, Manager, AAA Play
 
Each speaker will talk for around 15 minutes and following this there will be panel discussion and audience questions.

This event will not only give your Club valuable knowledge of inclusion strategies to implement at your Club but also give you a chance to meet some of the key staff here at Council and other representatives from your area, as well as four people with expertise in this area.
