Let me start off by saying in the 13 years of me being at 3 S.E.R. 97.7FM Radio station this has been a huge task I have learnt heaps along the way.
1. What is Party zone Aus?
I would not have been able to been done with the huge support from David Pearce my website Assistant. It has been done in conjunction with 3S.E.R. Radio Station to recognise not only Disability Organisations in Australia but also around the world.
2. How did the Website come about?
I had this idea around the same time that the station went online. So I emailed David L and said you know with the station now going on line I can now tell my disabled friends who live outside the South East boundary who have wanted to listen to the show for years but have never been able to until now. So then David L came back to me and David P and said I want you guys to put together a Disability directory for the station.
3. What is the website designed to do?
To let people know that there is a Radio show, like The Party zone with disabled people involved in it. We ask people to ring up, or send requests, and make them feel part of the show.
Another way you can look at it is, we have been able to put this Disability Directory together to just give people a chance to see what disability organisations and support services there are out there around this world. On here there is between 90 to 100 Websites. It is also about networking with each other.
4. What do you hope to Achieve out of this website?
Our aim in setting up this web site was to make people aware of what can be achieved. Just because a person may have a disability, does not mean that they are in fact incapable of achieving in this world. We all have some sort of disability. It is just that for some, the disability may be more visible.
Doing this has given us the opportunity to combine 3 things we love best. Music, Radio and Disability. But the most important thing to us is that we hope it will give people a better understanding about Disability. One final thing; if you see a person with a Disability don't be shy to speak to them normally. If they are someone who can't speak, look for facial expressions, or look for the communication board on the back of the wheelchair -partyzoneaus.multiply.com
