Interchange Illawarra is excited to be marking 40 years of serving the Illawarra community. Since our foundation in 1981 it has been our vision to support people with disabilities and their carers to live meaningful lives.
From very humble beginnings Interchange maintains a belief that it is our core business to provide support to people with disabilities, carers and families, that ‘complements not complicates’ their lives. Over the years we have grown our team of paid staff and volunteers, but at heart we are still just a very big family.
So now it’s time to celebrate!
With the uncertainty around large gatherings, especially for our vulnerable community, we have decided to forgo having one big party and instead, we are planning to mark 40 years of service with a simultaneous picnic. We are inviting participants, their families, carers, volunteers and support workers to hold their own picnic 6pm – 7pm on Friday 3rd December 2021.
There will be an online launch and entertainment. Participants will be provided with a ‘Party Box’ prior to the event with instructions not to open it until a given signal.
