Hi Tim, tell me a little bit about your background and how you came about to set up your website Disabilityequip.com.au in Perth, Western Australia?

Tim from DisabilityEquip
I am an occupational therapist and have worked in a number of areas before working currently in the disability area. I love what I do, the people I work with and the clients i serve. The changes currently happening in the disability sector can be confusing for some and can cause anxiety for others. I would like to support people with disabilities and their families through this change in what ever way i can. Hence I created this website after surfing the web and looking for resources specifically for people with disabilities in Australia.

What is disabilityequip.com.au?

Tim from Disabilityequip
Disabilityequip.com.au is the first and only website in Perth, at this time, that provides an opportunity for buyers and sellers to trade, buy and sell second hand equipment related to disability. There are also relevant articles / information on the website. I hope that this will become an invaluable resource in a time of resource and financial constraints.

How do people use this website?

Tim from Disabilityequip
Once they land on the webpage, people can create a profile to list their items. It is easy to use as people only need to describe their items and if they want to, to upload a photo of the item. Then they wait for any interested parties to contact them.
