Free Hume Disability Expo

People with disability, parents, carers and friends can find the latest information on employment and education opportunities, support services, respite, leisure opportunities and much more at the Hume Disability Expo on Monday 23 October.

Hume Mayor, Councillor Drew Jessop, said the Hume Disability Expo would host more than 60 community and disability service supports available and also featured information sessions about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

“We want to celebrate the many abilities of those in the Hume community living with a disability and encourage them to participate in community programs and activities and inform them of the services available,” Cr Jessop said.

“This expo is particularly of interest to individuals in the Hume and Moreland areas who are looking to be informed and prepared for the transition to the NDIS, starting from 1 March 2018.

“By providing our community with the latest information about products, services, supports and opportunities for people with a disability, we aim to improve our community’s access to disability support services.”

Information will be provided on:

  • Flexible supports
  • Equipment and assistive technology
  • Skills training and employment
  • National Disability Insurance Australia (NDIA) specific supports
  • Support and information groups
