We're halfway through the year - can you believe it? It's been another busy past month here at Support Your Way, and we can't wait to update you on all that's happened and what's in store for us next.
Source Kids Disability Expo 2022 in Melbourne
Support Your Way was at the Source Kids Disability Expo in Melbourne on June 18 and 19!
Held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, the Source Kids Disability Expo is a large disability expo geared towards children, parents and everyone else in between. Thousands attended, and our team thoroughly enjoyed getting to have open conversations, laughs and watching performances at the Expo.
We had so much fun at the expo! It was great meeting and getting to know our members, and we loved learning all about the amazing things other organisations do as well.
We'll catch you at the next Expo - stay tuned! Here are our favourite snaps from the weekend:

Recap on Positive Futures Expo 2022
The Positive Futures Expo 2022 was held at the John McVeity Centre on June 1st in South Australia, and our SA team was there to represent Support Your Way.
Our SA team, led by Santo, Chantel, Travis and Jono, had so much fun meeting our South Australian participants, support workers, as well as getting to know some fresh faces!
The Expo was designed to:
Showcase exciting & inclusive opportunities for education, training, employment & volunteering available to people living with disability
Understand possible career pathways
Connect with employers and service providers
Be inspired by others and their stories
Discover your strengths and interests
We will most likely be making an appearance at the next Positive Futures Expo, as well as more Expo's around South Australia...so stay tuned! 😊
Recap on Powerchair Competition
Some of our team members from Melbourne and Adelaide traveled to Sydney to compete in the Australian Powerchair Football Association’s 2022 Club Championships at Sydney Olympic Park! 🏆
It was fantastic seeing everybody in action, doing what they love and competing on the biggest stage. Our teams were absolutely amazing - thank you everyone for cheering them on and tuning in to the live broadcast of the competition! 🙌🏻🎉
Our South Australian team managed to finish 4th while our Victorian team finished 6th. Congratulations to both teams!
