Jewish Care Victoria and Maccabi All Abilities have recently signed a new memorandum of understanding, extending a long history of collaboration.
As part of the agreement, the organisations have committed to continuing to work together to provide inclusive social, recreational and sporting activities to people living with a disability in the Victorian Jewish community.
“We are thrilled to renew our commitment to working with Maccabi All Abilities to support people living with a disability to engage in sport and recreational activities,” said Jewish Care CEO Bill Appleby. “Partnerships such as these strengthen bonds between communal organisations and enhance our ability to deliver person-centred support.”
