All funds raised from the Mayor’s Walk for Disability will go towards the Wolfdene Foundation’s Project 28 initiative, which will see the development of supported accommodation for people in Casey who live with a disability, and are still in the care of their ageing parents or carers.
Sod turned to kick start Project 28
Project 28 will address a current shortfall of 28,000 households Australia wide for people living with a disability, and strive to achieve 28 supported accommodation units by 2028.
Currently, there are thousands of Australians with a disability who are forced to live in unsuitable homes because there are no alternatives, however this initiative will help address this problem that is faced by so many.
In the lead up to the main event, Cr Stapledon has participated in public training sessions called Walk and Talk with the Mayor. These sessions were held each Tuesday morning at 9.30 am at a different location across Casey.
