catch up crew - July
Wow - how awesome was June's Catch Up Crew event at Nobbys Surf Club. What a night hey?
Let's catch up again in July to keep the good vibes going - enjoy good company, a night out, great food and the chance to be part of something bigger - building connections between people with and without disability in our local community.
In July you are invited to Cantina in New Lambton!
Speak Up Hunter is a peer support group run for and by people with disability. We learn how to speak up for ourselves and our rights.
This month, we will be painting our message about Speaking Up on records. Shane Kenno from UP&UP will work with us on our hip hop and graffiti skills. There are lots of different ways to SPEAK UP!
Shane recently helped us to make "This Is My World" - we'd love to share this song with some new people - so come and join us!
If you have any questions or need help to register, please contact us on:

You are invited to the launch of an exciting new film to raise awareness about Deafblindness.
This film was made by Hunter Deafblind Peers - a local peer support group run for and by people who are Deafblind.
“It’s about letting people know we exist. Even though we are Deafblind we just communicate in different ways… we go about things differently to achieve the same outcomes,” says Jex Truran-Lakaev, the man behind the group. Read more about Hunter Deafblind Peers here.
After the film is launched, we will kick in to some bush dancing with the Bushfire Bush Band. It's going to be a night to remember!
