Disability Awareness Day
Sunday 16th July 2017
WDP are working with a charity in Dubai to arrange a Disability Awareness Day in November, followed by an event next July. The partnership also includes supporting the charity in their aim to make Dubai the most accessible city in the world by 2020
We are working with NHS England and a charity in Zimbawe to run a DAD event there. Our Phoenix Project in partnership with St Mark Universal Copts Care are also planning to organise shipments of donated and refurbished mobility aids to Zimbawe in the near future.
WDP has been working with the 1step2step Charity who have confirmed they have a DAD project for severely disabled youngsters. The children will be making celebratory bunting which will be hung at a party being held on DAD day (16th July17). The bunting will then be sent to WDP to decorate our Independent Living Centre! Our Phoenix Project recently sent 6 pallets of mobility aids to the charity.
We are proud to announce that Bradley Auto Services (BAS) have joined us as a new sponsor for DAD 2017
St George Healthcare Group and St Mark Universal Copts Care have been announced as joint principal sponsors for DAD17. Dave Thompson MBE DL Founder and Event Co-ordinator said, this is great news and builds upon our partnership with St George HCG and St Mark UCC. Last year they were the principal sponsors of WDP's Legacy Appeal and funding partners of the Pheonix Project.
The team at the Centre for Disability and Rehabilitation Uganda (CDR-Uganda) thanked the DAD Warrington team for their support after their first Disability Awareness Day event was hailed a huge success with over 10,000 visitors.
