Researchers at The University of Sydney wish to invite people with impairments aged 18 to 60 who reside in the Councils of Sutherland Shire, Hawkesbury City or Greater Taree City to participate in a ground-breaking project about disability and natural disasters. The project aims to build resilience to natural disasters in NSW local communities using an inclusive approach.
