Disabled Living Is Delighted to Bring the Kidz to Adultz Events to Bristol for the First Time!
9.00am – 4.30pm Thursday, 5th July 2018 – Thornbury Leisure Centre, Bristol BS35 3JB
Disabled Living (a registered charity) has a very proud history going back more than 120 years of supporting people with disabilities and additional needs through many of our free services, help lines, assessments, training courses and more. As part of our work we also organise the very prestigious portfolio of Kidz to Adultz Events which were established in 2001. These are free to attend events totally dedicated to children and young adults up to the age of 25 years with disabilities and additional needs, their parents carers and all the professionals who support them.
We are absolutely delighted to bring this FREE event to Bristol for the first time!
Following on from the success of Kidz to Adultz events in other locations across the UK (Manchester, Farnborough, Coventry and Edinburgh) and feedback from our visitors to make these event more accessible to others, particularly those from South Gloucestershire, South Wales, and further afield (Cornwall, Devon and the South West Coast), we are absolutely delighted to be holding this event at Thornbury Leisure Centre in Bristol for the first time!
A must attend event for individuals with disabilities and additional needs, their parents, carers and families and all the professionals who support them.
Exhibitors and seminars
With 80+ exhibitors, a large number of whom are regulars to our Kidz to Adultz events and also many of which are new, the event promises to be a one stop shop for access to the most up to date advice and information on equipment, products and services, including advice on alternative funding streams and much more.
