People with disability, their carers and families are invited to a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Expo on Thursday 16 November.
Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said the free event, being held at Dee Why RSL Showroom from 1 - 6.30pm, was designed to give our Northern Beaches’ residents information about service providers in the local area.
