Cake and snags on the menu as Verto celebrate Day of Disability

Verto Orange hosted a morning tea on Monday to celebrate International Day of Disability. 

The morning tea was held at their William Street offices and was followed by a barbecue.

National disability co-ordination officer Kris Lear said it was designed to build a sense of community. 

“It’s basically just celebrating international day of people with disability, so [it’s] for anyone that wants to come in to be part of an inclusive community,” he said.

“Just enjoy a chance to talk, mingle, have a barbecue, morning tea, cut some cake.”

Mr Lear said it was also a chance for people to see what services are available within the local community.

Those include services to help students with disabilities transition to further education and disability employment services.
