Local disability support and service providers are invited to register an interest in this year’s Regional Disability Expo.
Returning to the region after last year’s success the Regional Disability Expo will be held in Bundaberg in April.
The event was created by Sharon Fulwood after her personal experiences trying to navigate life with her two disabled children, Jake with Spina Bifida and Ryan with multiple conditions including high-functioning Autism.
Sharon said she struggled to navigate the disability industry and find the much-needed support her children required.
Now, armed with the countless years of insight and knowledge, Sharon is dedicating her time so that other regional parents and carers can easily find the support they desperately need by organising the Regional Disability Expo.
Sharon started Regional Disability Expo to bring the disability community together to celebrate, empower, learn, share, and experience the latest technologies available to people living with a disability and their carers.
“It’s a much-needed event that has already had people registering early to attend with great anticipation.” Sharon says.
“The Bundaberg Region will finally be able to access all available services under one roof without having to travel long distances.”
Sharon is inviting suppliers of products or services for people with developmental delays, health conditions, congenital disabilities or other health conditions to become involved in this fantastic opportunity to become an active participant in the Bundaberg disability community.
“We’re looking for exhibitors across a range of support and services, especially in the sport, recreation, product, post-school and advocacy areas,” she said.
“This year there has been a high demand for exhibitor sites, and we have a very limited number of sites available. Get in quick and don’t miss out on this great opportunity to become a part of the Bundaberg disability community.”
