Feel the Vibe Virtual Week

Event date: 26 November 2021 , Comments

Northcott’s Feel the Vibe Virtual Week is intended to be a series of fun, welcoming and interactive webinars for adults with disability to learn all about sexuality, sexual health and sexual fulfilment.

The expo this year will look a little different, with ‘exhibitor stalls’ being replaced with topic talks on adult products, sex positivity, sexuality and the NDIS and sexual health. In addition to topic talks Northcott will be putting on some exciting entertainment during the week for a bit of extra fun!

Webinars will be held every night from Monday 22 November – Friday 26 November 2021 starting at 5:00pm.
