Are you a participant, carer or family member looking
to understand how to navigate the NDIS?

With around 41,000 West Australians receiving NDIS help - and with about 22,000 people with disabilities accessing the scheme for the first time in that state - searching through the hundreds of providers to connect with THE right one with the right products and services can be daunting, which is why our 2022 Disability Connection Expos are so vital.

Don’t you just wish you had an NDIS expert you could turn to to discuss your most troublesome and burning issues? A real person, in real time and get a direct answer, not the runaround?

Well, if you're after that type of support, then we'd love to invite you to the Perth Disability Connection Expo 2022, sponsored by St Jude’s Health Care Services on August 12 and 13 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre where we guarantee real experts can and will help you.

At this Developing Australian Communities expo we will have more than 200 experienced exhibitors who will be on hand to address any and every NDIS question, all under one roof.

We will have a clear COVID policy venue to keep you safe and with that in mind, we have come up with a whole range of unique and innovative ways for providers to connect with the experts with the solutions.

We've gathered a panel of NDIS experts so if you are struggling with answers, bring your questions to the NDIS Q&A Concierge Desk, no matter how big or small or complicated.

You will also be able to access our NDIS Q&A Concierge desk, facilitated by experts where visitors can go for answers to any of their burning NDIS questions and we will even be doing lots of live streaming over the two days so participants who aren’t there know about you.

Centrestage will come alive when we showcase a wide range of all the exhibitors and a diverse range of services that they bring to the table.

A whole host of fun things like hair braiding, balloon artists, inflatable courses and more!

Plus, we will even be doing lots of live streaming over the two days so participants who aren’t there know about you.

Let us shine the light on your business or your problematic NDIS question at the Perth Disability Connection Expo 2022.

So if you're looking to kickstart 2022 in the perfect way, by engaging quality conversations and meaningful connections, register HERE today.

Why is this a must-attend expo?

Get answers to your
NDIS questions

Many NDIS Participants, Carers and Family members have questions about their funding, how it works and who to work with. We have Q&A Concierge Desks, 1:1 meeting rooms and an online booking system for you to search and find helpful Providers and Exhibitors

Clarity on your NDIS Funding Plan

Connect with informed and experienced Providers that can give you certainty so that you’re informed, educated and you can make the best decisions for your situation.

Have some fun!

We’ve designed the expo to include loads of entertainment (face painters, balloon artists, hair braiders and more), hourly performances and lots of chill out areas so you can enjoy your time, not just access information.

What People are Saying

  • SHARIA, BLUESTAR HOME CARE SERVICES

    “The expo is, basically for us, because we just, we love to connect with people and this is a better place: this is just a grand place where you can meet with a lot of people, you can make a lot of connections and it's a very big shout out for our company when we get to show what exactly we are providing and what we are offering.”

    SHARIA, BLUESTAR HOME CARE SERVICES
  • BLOSSOM COMMUNITY CARE

    “The expo is definitely very good exposure and a very good environment: Open space, meeting different participants. There are heaps of participants asking how to apply for NDIS and also asking what services we can provide. So we got to help the participants.”

    BLOSSOM COMMUNITY CARE
  • KURIAN, A BETTER LIFE HOME CARE SERVICES

    “The expo is beautiful! Lots of people are coming who are desperate (for NDIS solutions). Now I can understand that Brisbane needs lots of services. We'll be here soon - our office will be here (in Brisbane) soon.”

    KURIAN, A BETTER LIFE HOME CARE SERVICES
  • CHRIS AND CHERYL, ASPIRE HUB

    “It feels like there's so much more, so many more providers here this year, and it's really good to see so many different providers providing all sorts of different supports. It's been amazing, great! Well done guys. Love it.”

    CHRIS AND CHERYL, ASPIRE HUB
  • ALLISON, THE ORCA PROJECT, WESLEY MISSION

    “We really, really love this particular expo. There's something that you guys do that's really special. I think that whole developing of community just shines through and that's the most important thing for us: We're about community all the time, about making sure that our young people are connecting in community and supported and so, we can feel that in this kind of space and we love being a part of it, so, we are really grateful to be here.”

    ALLISON, THE ORCA PROJECT, WESLEY MISSION
  • SUPPORT CARE ANGELS

    “It's been fun and we even go dancing and singing over there. It's been a great experience for us because this is the first year we are participating in this. We tried last year, but we just were too late. So we're looking forward to more years, actually!”

    SUPPORT CARE ANGELS
  • VERN POWELL, HOLISTIC HORIZONS

    “It's been so busy we have been struggling to keep up, honestly. The great thing about this expo is that we have everything under one roof here. People can come and just explore all different aspects of services,specialised goods etc, so it’s just great for the people coming to the expo.So it's just great for the people coming to the expo. We will definitely be back as a major sponsor next year.”

    VERN POWELL, HOLISTIC HORIZONS
  • SYDNEY, BRAINCARE

    “It's been such an amazing turnout. I've been so amazed even just by the mood of everybody here. Everyone is so welcoming and so excited about the different options here available. All the exhibitors have been so friendly. It's been just a wonderful experience so far.”

    SYDNEY, BRAINCARE
  • SULETT, AFFORD

    “Oh, it's amazing. It's so refreshing to see a consistent stream of people coming through… every one I've attended it's just getting bigger and better as we go. So well done. Great job. And we love being here. It's been very busy and you know we just love seeing familiar faces and helping people get the support though they need, or at least give them information to get the support they need.”

    SULETT, AFFORD
  • FRAN, AUSTRALIAN COMMUNITIES

    “It's been awesome, we've met so many great people, and a lot of participants have come up to say hello. We've actually found a lot of people coming over just to ask generalised questions. Sometimes they're just not quite sure on who to actually talk to, so they've come, taken a seat and we've just been having a bit of a chat about what supported independent living actually is, and what short term accommodation is as well, because some people are not quite sure what the difference is. It's been great really talking to the participants and their guardians as well around that.”

    FRAN, AUSTRALIAN COMMUNITIES

    Event Participants
    Connection sessions with service providers
    Want to sit down and talk to some of the Service Providers over the two days of Expo 2022?
    • Don’t just walk past tables and gather pamphlets.
    • Meeting spaces with an online booking facility to make appointments with participating Providers you would like to speak to directly will be available each day.
    • Arrange a sit-down and talk to some potential Providers to find that perfect fit for you.
    • Providers with capacity will have 20-30 minute appointment times. Attendees can book on either of the two days to find out more in a safe and no-pressure setting.
    • Traveling around having meetings with different Providers usually takes time. Meet a few on the same day and make it a little easier to compare and find the right ones for you.

    This might be your chance to find that great option you have been looking for!
