March Community Information Sessions

Get on board this exciting adventure with The Great Bike Hike (TGBH) and join us for the latest round of Community meetings to progress and explore the opportunities for showcasing and celebrating inclusive practices that make WA communities such welcoming and affirming places for  people with disabilities, mental illness, their families and carers. 

Neil Carver -Smith and Cindy Gorton, the Community Liaison Team, are keen to encourage and work with the towns identified on the Great Bike Hike route to plan and run local community Expos and celebrations.

To help this happen, the Chair of TGBH, Bevan Dellar, and the Community Liaison team are coming soon to visit 7 of the towns/city on The Great Bike Hike route and invite community members to meet with us to find out more about how you can get involved and the assistance we can give you.   Community meeting details are set out below.

Get Ready

We are looking for government and non-government organisations and the community in general to get involved in the following ways:

  • Join the local team who are planning the celebrations and Expo
  • Showcase your project/initiative for people with a disability at the Expo
  • Run an event/activity there to encourage 'Count Me In' practices
  • Promote TGBH event to your neighbours and friends
  • Help out on the day
  • Come and meet the intrepid riders as they join in your local celebrations and Expo

So if you are from a local school, a sports club, a disability group, the local council, or just a concerned and interested local and you want to attend the meeting please send us an email.
