Recreation Programs For People With a Disability
Strathfield Council in partnership with the Recreation Sports and Aquatics Club and Sports 4 All are running free programs for people with a disability.
For more information, class times and bookings, see the attached flyer.
A mobility map is an invaluable tool to assist those with mobility challenges to orient themselves to a particular environment and to identify the safest route of travel for themselves. It assists those with mobility challenges in being able to maintain their independence by enabling them to plan their movement in the mapped area and also assists in avoiding any known hazards.
Should you, as a user, encounter any inaccuracies or problems using the map which may be viewed below, Council would encourage you to report your experience so that we can continually improve the information we provide.
If you have any feedback please advise Council’s Aged and Disability Officer on 9748 9999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
