Plenty of smiles at Ability Options event

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles were proud to host our friends from Ability Options at Narrabeen recently.

As part of the annual Ability Options Day, participants came together to watch the Sea Eagles NRL side train under Coach Trent Barrett as well as taking part in some fun drills session run by the NRL Development team.

Following training, the Sea Eagles players enjoyed a lunch with the guests from Ability Options.

Ability Options have been supporting people with disability who need assistance to achieve their aspirations and inclusion in the community for 40 years.  Ability Options provide a variety of services from 25 sites across NSW, supporting people in the home and in the community, in education, with allied health, supported and independent living through the NDIS. 

Ability Options assist people to find the job that’s right for them, through the Australian Government’s jobactive scheme as well as the Disability Employment Scheme (DES).

“I loved meeting the players and getting their autographs. My favourite thing was playing the fun footy games with my friends. It was the best day ever,’’ said Mark, who travelled from the Hunter.

Neil Bare, Chief Operating Officer for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, warmly welcomed Ability Options guests and participants to this year’s Community Day.

“It was again our pleasure to host our Community Partner, Ability Options, at their annual Community Day event,’’ Mr Bare said.

“Ability Options participants support the team at our home game matches throughout the season and this event gives the participants an opportunity to meet and spend time with our players in a relaxed and informal setting.
