by boss Dec 03, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Virtual Event City of Hamilton,
Dec 03 , 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

This FREE conference is in honour of International Day of People with Disabilities and is for anyone who is differently abled, supporters, educators, health care professionals, and anyone who wants to help enrich the quality of life of, and advocate for, individuals living with special needs.

 

Windreach Bermuda hope to engage a large cross section of Bermuda as the needs of People with Disabilities touch all areas of our community.

People with Disabilities have been fighting for their right to be heard, both in their own lives, as well as in the greater community. This fight continues to this day and we want to bring their voices and needs to the forefront. Having direct input in one's life has a clear effect on overall health, well-being, and quality of life. Learn how you can have an impact on the betterment of individual lives, and the community, as a whole.
