International Day of People with Disability
Tuesday 3rd December
To celebrate International Day of People with Disability, the team at DVJS Employment Solutions invited their Jobseekers, Employers and Staff to join in and have fun by hosting a free event at OZ Ten Pin Bowling in Narre Warren.
Every year on 3 December, the world takes part in celebrating the achievements of people with disability and promote awareness, understanding and acceptance in the community.
The team was overwhelmed by the response from our Jobseekers and Employers wanting to participate and celebrate the day. Everyone has had so much fun, smiles all round and lots of laughter. The day also provided a great chance for new friendships to be made helping those who may struggle meeting people or live in isolation
Thanks again for everyone involved in making this truly a wonderful occasion and we look forward to hosting another event in the near future.

We understand that putting yourself out there and trying new things can be very intimidating and we are very proud of the crew who attended to gave it a shot.

The wonderful support staff work closely with the players and assist in addressing any challenges they may be experiencing, including homelessness, substance abuse, family breakdown and mental illness. Players are encouraged to develop new friendships and seek advice and support from their community.
Community Street Soccer has a motto of putting the person at the centre of the solution and works to provide individuals in the community with the tools and assistance they need to make positive changes in their lives. DVJS is excited about being involved with such a valuable program in the community.
If you are interested, pop along, its run every Wednesday night from 4pm-6pm at the Hockey courts at Oasis Dandenong. All abilities are encouraged to give it a go.
