Ability Links participated in the event with a stall, which was a great success. Calvary Retirement Community hosted a Seniors Week Open Day and Markets in Cessnock on the 11th March 2017 which involved tours of the site and stalls run by the local community and service providers.
While the event was advertised in the local newspaper and social media, Ability Links noted that the event was not being promoted as being inclusive of people with disability.
Ability Links made contact with Emily, Calvary’s Marketing and Communication officer, who confirmed that the event was accessible, taking on board Ability Links’ suggestion to let people know about the accessible and inclusive nature of the event.
The event was subsequently promoted as inclusive and easily accessible for those with a disability. Ability Links participated in the event with a stall. It was a great success.

A yarn with Bernie Tierney is full of many wonderful moments – always interesting, educational and often hilarious.
With his infectious laugh and smile it’s no surprise Bernie’s work as a Linker with the Orange Local Aboriginal Land Council is so effective and changing lives in rural towns across the vast Central West. From West Wyalong to Forbes, Condoblin to Orange, Bernie has a passion to support as many people as he can in their journey to live the life they want to lead.
