January Update from AAA Play 
 
We're back!! Reclink Australia and the AAA Play team have returned from a relaxing and safe holiday break and we hope you have too!
There are some great programs happening this summer. Have you always wanted to try a sport or recreation? Now is the time to jump into something new and give it a go...
Business is back as usual so get in touch with the team and we'll help you to get started.

In the Spotlight

December started with a lot of energy while the AAA Play team celebrated International Day of People with a Disability.
We were star struck by our conversation with the exceptional Kelly Cartwright, hosted a breakfast, joined forces with Disability Sport and Recreation and many other sport and disability service providers to spread awareness at the festival on Crown River Walk and launched a brand new service to help people with disabilities access better information about leisure facilities in their area!

We saw out the end of 2018 with some time to rest while our offices were closed. So we wanted to make sure to let you know straight away that we're back to business as usual. So don't spend the summer sitting around. Head to aaavic.org.au, call us on 1800 222 842 or email request@aaavic.org.au

AAA Ambassador News

Recently we had Flynn join us, and we asked him to write a bit about his experience. It's not everyday we get to appreciate the thoughts of a year ten student and it was refreshing to read. Flynn was instrumental in supporting the AAA Play team to deliver some key work and had a real impact in a very short time.
