Caudwell Children to attend Europe’s biggest disability trade fair

Caudwell Children, the national charity that provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families, is to attend the Naidex National Exhibition, Europe’s biggest disability trade fair.

It will take place at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre, from Tuesday 28th March until Thursday 30th March, 2017. Doors are open from 10am until 5pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, and from 10am until 4pm on Thursday. Admittance to the event is free.

The exhibition attracts visitors from across the UK, eager to find out more about the current approaches to childhood disability, and the state-of-the-art technology that is now available to disabled children.

Combining 150 seminars, 250 exhibitors, live demos, interactive features and world-class speakers, the event is a unique experience giving parents and carers access to a range of providers, traders and professionals.

naidexElaine Revans, from Caudwell Children, is delighted that the charity will be attending the event, thanks to a partnership with the Prysm Media Group Ltd, organisers of the exhibition. As she explained: “For a charity like ours it’s extremely important to have the opportunity to network with those working in the current independent living industry, and it helps us to understand what’s on offer to the families that we support.”

“The Naidex event is at the forefront of innovation and, as the industry continues to evolve, it’s vital for Caudwell Children to remain up to date with all that’s on offer.”

From specialists in baths, beds and bibs, to stair climbers and sensory equipment, the exhibition will be a vital source of information for professionals and consumers alike.

“The exhibition is also a great opportunity for us to connect with families who could benefit from the support of Caudwell Children,” continued Elaine. “There will be 12,000 visitors all looking to see first-hand the future of disability and independent living, and how charities, like ours, can help them.”

Caudwell Children will be on stand J7 of the exhibition and Elaine says she’s looking forward to telling visitors how the charity supports disabled children and their families: “We’re passionate about disabled children having the ability to reach their full potential.

“So I’m really excited about explaining how our therapies, treatments, specialist equipment, short breaks and annual holiday to Disney World, in Florida, will help them to do just that.”
