Due to measures introduced under COVID-19, Disability Awareness Day organisers had to cancel plans for the 29th anniversary event, originally scheduled for July 12.
Knowing that the need for information, advice and guidance on independent living is as important today, as it has ever been, organisers have developed an online virtual event, one that will be fully interactive and based on the DAD live events loved by over 28,000 visitors who usually attend Walton Hall and Gardens each year.
DAD-Virtual will go ahead from 10am this Sunday, 25 October, via a dedicated website HERE.
To attend, just click on the link where you will have the opportunity to speak to over 200 exhibitors and watch performances from some of the top disabled artists.
The main event will be followed by nine free one hour workshops being held via Zoom, the week following DAD Virtual, from Monday 26th till Friday 30th.
Bookings can be made HERE.
Organisers went on to explain that the support of sponsors, as well as funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund has enabled this virtual event to take place.
