PEOPLE of all abilities are invited to celebrate International Day of People with Disability in Midland this Thursday.

The event is a collaboration between My Supports and the National Disability Insurance Scheme Perth Hills Trial Site.

Mental Health Commissioner Tim Marney will speak at the event, while entertainment and catering will keep the crowds satisfied.

Organiser and My Supports chairman Jim Cairns said there had been significant progress made to make life easier for people with disabilities in recent times.

The NDIS Perth Hills Trial Site had developed plans for 1462 people with disabilities since it opened in July 2014.

Meanwhile, the team at My Supports has seen a number of integration successes, with its clients achieving diverse personal goals.

Go to the NDIS building at 80 Railway Parade in Midland between 11am and 1pm.
