LIFE Without Barriers (LWB) will celebrate its 25th anniversary with the launch of a documentary chronicling its past and present.
Screening at Tower Cinemas from 6pm on June 14, The LWB Story shows how it grew from humble beginnings in Newcastle to become one of Australia’s largest not-for-profit organisations supporting more than 18,000 people.
The service now supports people with disability and mental health problems, children in out-of-home care, asylum seekers, and older Australians.
Chair of Life Without Barriers, Terry Lawler said the organisation employs 5000 staff to help clients in about 440 communities across the country.
“None of this would’ve been possible without the ongoing support of the Newcastle community,” he said.
