Disability Awareness Day 2016

3 May 2016

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  and this year it is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Visitors to the show on Sunday, July 10 will find over 250 exhibitors, equipment suppliers, transport, holidays, leisure, employment, support groups and services, plus a Sports Zone including Scuba diving, an Arts Marquee and family entertainment. The show opens at 10am and finishes at 5pm, and entry is free with a free programme of events.

The Aims of DAD
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.
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!

Disability Awareness Day 2016 will take place on Sunday 10 July at Walton Hall and Gardens.
