Central Coast young people with a disability are holding an inclusive dance party on Saturday night for friends, family and anyone in the community looking for a fun time.

The young people are supported by the not-for-profit organisation Social Futures, a National Disability Insurance Scheme Partner in the Community.

Social Futures’ Community Development Coordinator Scott Jones says the group want any young person feeling isolated to come the dance party, which will also feature a live band.

“There were six young people on the Central Coast, who told us that  they felt isolated after leaving school and had minimum socialisation ,” Mr Jones said.

Mr Jones said the young people came into contact with Social Futures after joining the NDIS, and have set up the WAVES working group.

“They said that there was no community event where they felt safe and welcome, so they’ve decided to develop and hold inclusive dance parties every three months and everyone is welcome – people with and without disability,” he said.

“The dance party will charge a $15 entry fee to cover expenses, including the cost of the band.

“They are looking forward to attracting a good turn out to ensure the dance is part of the Central Coast landscape for years to come. And I also need to acknowledge the wonderful assistance of Terrigal Rotary , Bendigo Bank and CCLC. This dance party is a prime example of community providing for community.”

The dance party will be held at Central Coast Leagues Club from 7pm to 10 pm this Saturday, June 11.
