Assistive Technology Expo

Celebrate Disability Action Week

Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) is encouraging the community to come along to the Disability Assistive Technology Expo at the Toowoomba Civic Precinct on Tuesday September 11 from 10.00am – 3.00pm. 

 The theme for this year’s event is “An all abilities Queensland: everybody has a role to play.

Disability Action Week aims to empower people with a disability, raising awareness of disability issues, and improving access and inclusion throughout the wider community.

Cr Joe Ramia says; “Council is committed to fostering and encouraging a more inclusive community.  A place where people with a disability are respected for their resilience, talents and abilities, and given equal access to opportunities that will assist them too reach their full potential.”

“With 1 in 5 Queenslanders having a disability, and disability touching the lives of most Queenslanders in some way, it is important that we take time to recognise the contributions, achievements and positive roles they play in our community.

“There will be free entry to the Expo and the community is being encouraged to come along and enjoy a free sausage sizzle, check out stalls and talk to exhibitors from local businesses and service providers” Cr Ramia said.
