DISABILITY AWARENESS DAY 13th JULY 2014…

Disability Awareness week

Disability Awareness Day (“DAD”) is the world’s largest ‘not for profit’ voluntary-led disability exhibition, held annually in a huge tented village within the grounds of Walton Hall Gardens in Warrington.

Visitors to the show will find over 250 exhibitors, equipment suppliers, transport, holidays, leisure, employment, support groups and services. PLUS a Sports Zone including Scuba diving, an Arts Marqee and family entertainment. The show opens at 10am and finishes at 5pm, and entry is FREE with a FREE programme.

The Aims of DAD

Disability Awareness Day is a pan disability event which promotes a can do culture focussing on what disabled people can do throughout life and work. The show has three main aims:

To highlight what statutory, private or voluntary services are available to enable disabled people to stay independent.

To promote equipment and aides that could maintain or improve independence, not just what is offered by statutory service providers, we want everyone to see the best and/or latest designs

To provide an opportunity to showcase what disabled people can do, in the field of Sport, Arts and Entertainment

As well as fulfilling all these aims every year the show also gives everyone who comes a really good day out filled with interest, fun and entertainment!

  1. I think the biggest problem for any charity at the moment is that there are so many charities now unless you really raise the awareness people just won’t support them, so I hope a post like this helps.
