About 3000 people from across Sydney are expected to flock the South-West Disability Expo in Liverpool later this week.
The 4community initiative supported by councils will give people the chance to enjoy entertainment and learn about the latest technology and products on offer over two days.
It will be launched by comedian Tim Ferguson and the Minister for Disability Services, Ray Williams.
Liverpool Mayor WendyWaller said there will be more than 120 exhibitors, reflecting the council’s strong commitment to ensure every member of the community has the support they need.
“Everyone will have an opportunity to test-drive the latest technology and equipment and talk to government agencies, advocacy groups and find out more about the National Disability Insurance Scheme,” she said.
“We aim to improve the inclusion of people with disability and ensure they have access to updated and relevant information.”
Highlights will include Q&A sessions with guest speakers, such as the NDIS director of engagement, Mary Hawkins and free checkups from the Hearing Bus.
The mobile hearing service has provided more than 40,000 free hearing checks across Australia since the first bus was launched in 2009.
