After the success of its Douglas expo held last year, Mission Australia is bringing the new expo to Mareeba for the very first time tomorrow, Thursday 7 April. 

The expo is a community event to showcase what services, supports, activities and resources are available in the area. 

Mission Australia regional leader North Queensland, Dr Phil Flint, said local feedback and the success of a similar expo in the Douglas Shire, showed the strong community demand for the event. 

“This expo is designed to connect people with disability, their families and carers to community services,” he said. 

More than 50 interactive stalls will be on display during the expo including NDIS service providers, Mission Australia’s new drug and alcohol rehab project, indigenous primary health care service, adventure therapy, TAFE, disability employment providers and more. 

The expo will take place at the Cedric Davies Community Hub function room from 2pm and run until 4.30pm.
