Next Steps Expo 2019!!
The Next Steps expo is held every year - a collaborative event with local service providers, community organisations and entrepreneurs. The aim is to showcase what is available in greater Christchurch and to assist young people with disabilities and their families look at opportunities beyond school ... to connect young people and their families to local clubs, groups, networks, volunteering opportunities, sports, gardens, games and choirs ... any possibilities and opportunities happening in their neighbourhoods that they are keen to be involved with, as well as ensuring full citizenship; making use of the services and supports that all New Zealanders have available to them.
The 2019 Next Steps Expo is on Monday 15th April at Haeata Community Campus, in Aranui, and there is no cost to participate or to attend (but feel free to bring cash to support some young entrepreneurs who will be showcasing their businesses!!). See the Next Steps FaceBook page for more info
