Central Coast young people with a disability will hold an inclusive dance party on June 11 for friends, family and anyone in the community looking for a fun time.
The young people are supported by the not-for-profit organisation Social Futures, a National Disability Insurance Scheme Partner in the Community.
Social Futures’ Community Development Coordinator, Scott Jones, said the group wants any young person feeling isolated to come the dance party, which will feature live band Soul Station.
“There were six young people on the Central Coast who told us that they felt isolated after leaving school and had minimum socialisation,” Jones said.
He said the young people came into contact with Social Futures after joining the NDIS and have set up the WAVES working group.
“They said that there was no community event where they felt safe and welcome, so they’ve decided to develop and hold inclusive dance parties every three months and everyone is welcome – people with and without disability,” Jones said.
“The dance party will charge a $15 entry fee to cover expenses, including the cost of the band.
“They are looking forward to attracting a good turn out to ensure the dance is part of the Central Coast landscape for years to come.”
The dance party will be held at Central Coast Leagues Club from 7-10pm this Saturday, June 11.
