Access and Inclusion Service at Moomba 2023
“Travellers Aid is pleased to be working with a number of Melbourne’s iconic events to make them more accessible and inclusive to everyone.”
Travellers Aid Chief Executive Officer
Travellers Aid will once again be partnering with City of Melbourne to offer access and inclusion service at the 2023 Moomba Festival. Our friendly staff and volunteers will provide communication and mobility assistance as well as mobility equipment hire from 10am – 6pm, Saturday to Monday.
Travellers Aid, City of Melbourne and Moomba Festival are proud supporters of the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower initiative, assisting people with hidden disabilities. People can choose to wear the sunflower symbol so that trained Moomba staff can offer their assistance.
The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower is a discreet way to communicate that the wearer may need some additional support, help or a little more time. Fast becoming a globally recognised symbol, Travellers Aid is proud to support people with hidden disabilities gain better access to assistance when they require it. If you would like to stop by our marquee and collect a sunflower lanyard, you are more than welcome. We will also offer a safe, stress-free space for anyone who requires somewhere to self-regulate and calm.
The free service will be available to Moomba guests from:
11 to 13 March 2023, inclusive. 10am to 6pm.
No bookings required.
- Wheelchair or personal guidance
- Mobility equipment hire (wheelchairs and strollers)
- Information about the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower initiative
- A quiet space available for those who need it
