Melbourne Disability Expo

The Melbourne Disability and NDIS Expo will take place at the Melbourne Convention Centre from Friday 21st April to Saturday 22nd - yes, tomorrow!

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government-funded program in Australia that provides support and services to individuals with disabilities. The NDIS was introduced to improve the lives of people with disabilities by giving them more choice and control over the support services they receive. It aims to provide people with disabilities access to necessary services and support that enable them to participate in their communities and lead more independent lives.

The NDIS is funded by the Australian government and operates at both federal and state/territory levels. It has significantly changed the landscape of disability support in Australia by shifting from a welfare-based model to a more person-centered and individualized approach. The NDIS aims to provide people with disabilities the opportunity to live fulfilling lives, achieve their goals, and participate fully in society.

If you or someone you know is interested in accessing the NDIS, it's recommended to visit the official NDIS website or contact the NDIS directly to learn more about eligibility criteria, the application process, and available supports.

The Melbourne Disability Expo is an event designed to showcase the latest products, services, and technologies available for people with disabilities. The expo aims to provide an opportunity for people with disabilities, their families, carers, and support providers to connect with a wide range of exhibitors and learn about the latest developments in the disability sector.

The expo typically features a range of exhibitors from a variety of industries, including mobility and assistive technology providers, education and training providers, employment services, health and wellbeing services, and more. Attendees can also attend a range of workshops and seminars on topics such as NDIS, housing, employment, and advocacy.

If you are interested in attending the Melbourne Disability Expo or learning more about it, you may want to check the event's official website or social media pages for up-to-date information on schedules, exhibitors, and registration details.

This will be a great expo for anybody caring for someone with a disability to find out the latest news in this area or for health professionals.
