Trabasack to attend the Choice Unlimited Event

Trabasack is pleased to announce that they will be attending the Choice Unlimited event. Choice Unlimited Leicester is a new event aimed at disabled people, particularly young people, who want to find out about the services and options in their area. It will be held at the Leicester Tigers Stadium on the 21st November 2012, 10am – 6pm.

What is Choice Unlimited?

Choice Unlimited is a free event and everyone is welcome.  Disabled young people and young people with additional needs will find this event especially interesting as ‘Choice Unlimited is an opportunity to find out about information, services, products, ideas, innovation, education and employment.’  Parents, professionals and carers who work as service providers for them are encouraged to come along too.

This event particularly focuses on the ‘Transition Period’ which occurs when people are aged between 14 – 25 years old.  It’s a time of life when young people make sometimes momentous decisions about the life they wish to lead, the jobs they would like and where they want to settle.  Choice Unlimited aims to be a resource for young people who are in the midst of these choices and who often still need the support from services that are appropriate to their needs.

Who will be at the Event?

Trabasack will have a stand and the full range of their award winning lapdesk bags will be available. There will also be  over 160 exhibitors offering information and advice on: services, innovation, education, training, communications, wheelchair accessible vehicles, leisure and much more.  Voluntary and service organisations will be there too, with details on support, publications and holidays to name a few of the subjects covered. Trabasack will be at table 13 in the Products and Services Area.

Get Interactive!

If you’re someone with a ‘have a go!’ attitude, you might be interested in Choice Unlimited’s program of activities.  Get your pulse racing with a game of wheelchair rugby or perhaps roar around a race track with a driving simulator.  Should you prefer a more relaxed day, you’d be wise to consider the facials and pampering sessions that are on offer too.

Special Guest: Matt Hampson

Professional Development

There are workshops on various topics.  If you’re involved with supporting young people through this transition period it helps to be aware of what is available for them and for you.  These workshops will help you to give the best choices to the people you work with.

See You There!
