Researching and finding everything you need to support a family member with a disability can be difficult and time-consuming. Sharon Fulwood is a mother of three children, two of whom have different disabilities. At every step of her children’s development, she has needed to research disability aids and equipment, specialty products, specialist advice and appropriate support networks for her and her children. Experiencing frustrations and a disconnect in the sector motivated Sharon to do something to help others. She has made it her mission to make it easier for Sunshine Coast families, carers and people with disabilities to find the support, services and products to help them improve their quality of life. She wanted to create an event to connect businesses and networks within the disability sector together with these families and carers. This is how the Disability Expo Sunshine Coast idea was born and has now become a reality.
