Kidz to Adultz North was launched in 2001 by Disabled Living and now is one of the largest free exhibitions totally dedicated to children and young adults with disabilities and additional needs, their parents, carers and the professionals who support them.

“When as a family you learn you have a severely disabled child/grandchild your life is thrown into absolute turmoil and you feel you have to battle your way through at times, particularly with knowing what is out there and who to contact. This is where Kidz to Adultz helps so much.”

With 180+ exhibitors at the event, the exhibition gives all our visitors the chance to access the most up to date advice and information on mobility, funding, seating, beds, communication, continence, sensory, transition, education, housing, employment, accessible vehicles, sports & leisure and much, much more.
