This awareness day is the biggest non-profit led disability exhibition in Europe! Held annually in Walton Gardens, Warrington there are over 250 exhibitors and lots of fun activities including sports and Scuba Diving, an Arts Marqee and family entertainment. This fun filled event attracts over 25000 people each year.
The Disability Awareness Day aims to raise awareness of the voluntary, statutory and private services available to people with disabilities enabling them to be as independent as possible.
The Awareness Day also hopes to highlight to its supporters the equipment and aides that could maintain or improve independence and provides an opportunity to show all visitors to the event what disabled people can do, in the field of Sport, Arts and Entertainment.
