On the afternoon of Thursday 12.12.2019, DBV attended a City of Melbourne event to farewell Peter Whelan, who is leaving his role as MetroAccess Project Coordinator. In this role, Peter has worked with people with disabilities in the City of Melbourne to improve community services and make the city more accessible.
Peter had been a great supporter of DBV over the last few years and his support has helped our organisation grow and become stronger. Through Peter, DBV has also provided a number of Deafblind World workshops to raise deafblind awareness among council staff. We are sorry to see him go, and want to express our great appreciation for his support and to wish him all the best in whatever is next for him.
