Disability Trading Company swaps shopping centre unit for high street

DTC WDP shop in golden square

Warrington-based retailer Disability Trading Company (DTC) is set to move from its store in Golden Square shopping centre.

The living aids dealer will set up a new shop in a larger, brighter unit on Sankey Street in Warrington town centre.

DTC is the trading arm of not-for-profit organisation, Warrington Disability Partnership, which was set up by Dave Thompson MBE.

Warrington Disability Partnership recently launched a new mobility retail store in Warrington Hospital as part of a service to provide information, advice and guidance on disability matters.

The move is part of the group’s increasing diversification. Speaking to AMP in March, CEO Dave Thompson said that mobility companies must adapt to the changing market.

DTC is essential to WDP and its operations, helping to fund its local and national work.

During the past 28 years, the organisation has developed and now delivers 28 mobility and independent living services aimed at supporting disabled people and people living with long-term health conditions.

One of WDP’s latest projects is a new smart flat that is kitted out with an array of assistive technology designed to showcase the best equipment and products available and demonstrate how disabled people can use tech to live more independently.   

The smart flat was launched in partnership with Warrington Borough Council and with financial support from The Better Care Fund.
