Perth Disability Connection Expo

perth-disability-connection-expo-2022

Are you a participant, carer, or family member looking to understand how to navigate the NDIS? The Perth Disability Connection Expo, sponsored by St Jude’s, has been designed to provide an environment in which our visitors and NDIS service providers can connect, engage and find solutions that offer REAL CHOICE and CONTROL to those living with a disability. 

We want to ensure that… your health is our TOP priority! COVID-19 has created two years of disconnect, confusion and uncertainty. The Perth Disability Service Provider and Participant Connection Expo 2022 sponsored by St Jude’s is an opportunity for NDIS Participants and loved ones to come together, find answers to questions and connect with Service Providers that can help.

We understand the potential confusion and worry surrounding COVID and the possible concerns about such a large event but the disability sector can be assured the Perth Disability Connection Expo will be a safe haven. Understanding the current environment is the EXACT reason why we have booked a larger (8,800 sq metre) venue in the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The PCEC is large enough so participants, their carers and family members can socially distance themselves in comfort: you won’t need to squeeze past people to get to booths or watch the fun. More than 150 providers as well as a tailored NDIS Q&A Concierge service will be on hand to help you navigate the complexities of the NDIS, answer questions, and help you understand your plan. This Expo will take the frustration out of exhaustive searches for the right services.

Visit the stands, gather information and also arrange 1:1 meetings with Service Providers. This FREE event, held over two days, is the perfect opportunity to be guided through the NDIS process and find the solutions you need.
