The Supported Needs and Disability Office will be hosting a Disability Fair. The Disability Fair will take place at the Covered Muga, Bayside Sports Complex on Friday 1st December 2023 between 12:00 pm and 6:00 pm.
This Fair is an opportunity for members of the public to learn about the services that are available locally from both HM Government of Gibraltar and Non-Governmental Organisations. It is a chance for those working within the field to showcase what they have to offer. It is, also, therefore the perfect opportunity for persons with disabilities and their families to increase their support networks and to share experiences.
The Disability Fair will be composed of three distinct aspects, namely:
1. Charity / Private Professionals Stalls Some charities and private professionals will be setting up a stall to inform the community what services they provide and how they can help those with supported needs and disability.
2. HM Government of Gibraltar Stalls Various government departments will be present on the day to showcase what they have to offer those with supported needs and disability.
3. Speakers There will be a stage with keynote speakers who have different messages about disability. All talks are linked to the hearing loop and a BSL Interpreter will be present. Please find the itinerary below:

Wonderful to see our students participating in this competition and being able to enjoy their success. Well done to Kate Williamson (year 12), Beau Reyes (year 8) and Sofia Zammit (years 7).
Once again we participated in the Clean-up and focussed on the area of Catalan Bay car park. Our focus was to remove litter from the groynes and sides so as to prevent them from ending up in the sea. We also removed cigarete butts from the green verges of the carpark.
It was great to see so many of our students working with their teachers, SNLSAs and technicians with the common goal of improving our town and ensuring that it is a clean environment.

Congratulations to all our students! We're proud of all your achievements.
It was lovely to celebrate with our NINE Gibraltar scholars whose hard work has paid off, but it was equally lovely to see so many of you maximise your potential, whatever that may be.
