More than 80 providers will showcase their services at the Wyndham Disability Expo this week.
The expo will be held on Friday, November 29 in Hoppers Crossing.
Wyndham’s family friendly portfolio holder, Cr Mia Shaw, said the expo would provide attendees with an opportunity to meet with providers in areas including accommodation, home and vehicle modifications, therapies, language services, day and holiday support.
“Attendees can meet providers face-to-face to see how they can assist them and take part in the educational workshops during the day,” Cr Shaw said.
“More than 1,400 people attended the 2018 expo and many participants told us they learnt about many new services and how they can make their lives easier – and they even grew their support and friendship networks.
“This year’s expo will feature both NDIS and non-NDIS providers, supporting the community with information on how to get the most out of their NDIS packages and for those not eligible for the NDIS, information on pathways to services and support.”
Cr Shaw said the event would be fully-accessible and have language and Auslan interpreters, as well as guides, to help attendees find what they are looking for, along with a chill-out zone with sensory activities for children.
The Wyndham Disability Expo will be held at Encore Events Centre, 80 Derrimut Road, Hopppers Crossing from 10am to 3pm. See www.wyndham.vic.gov.au/disabilityexpo for details.
