Access INC comes to AJAX Football Club

Posted: 28-Jul-2011 by Maccabi VIC

A part of the AJAX Football Club's Mission is for its players "to make a meaningful contribution to the local Jewish Community...and develop greater awareness by its members in the general aspects of life and community.."

In an attempt to further that aim, one of the Club's initiatives, is to invite Access Inc. to bring some of the Jewish "challenged" kids or young adults to a training night at the AJAX Football Club and then to a game on the following Saturday afternoon.

Access Inc. will bring some ACCESS guests to tonight’s Thursday evening training session. AJAX Senior Club footballers will train with their guests and then will sit down together for a vegetarian pasta meal in the Club rooms during the weekly ritual of team naming. Players will share their disappointment and/or excitement in being named in their respective teams.

The AJAX Football Club is very excited about hosting their very special guests.

Access Inc is a not-for-profit organisation working to help integrate Jewish people with disabilities into the fabric of the Melbourne Jewish community.
The organisation was formed in 1989 by a number of concerned parents of disabled children and adults who wanted to create a more satisfying and integrated life for their children in the community.
Access Inc has a strong vision of including people with disabilities into communal life for the enrichment of everyone. It works to promote community awareness and knowledge about disability and fulfils an important advocacy role. It also provides an invaluable resource and support network for people with disabilities.
Access fundraising is a small group of people who raise money in order to help these visions become a reality. All funds raised help to enrich the lives of people with a disability
