Disability Awareness Day was founded by Dave Thompson MBE DL in 1992 and is managed by Warrington Disability Partnership, the charity Dave founded in 1991. Warrington Disability Partnership (WDP) is based in Warrington at the Centre for Independent Living, Evelyn Street, Warrington WA5 1BA and the phone number is 01925 240064.
Disability Awareness Day is a pan disability event which promotes a can do culture focusing 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 aids 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
At Ace our vision is: A world where everyone has their voice heard so that people live good lives as part of their community with the right support, at the right time from the right people.
