Disability Awareness Day has confirmed it will be a virtual event this year.
Due to COVID-19, organisers explained how it was unable to hold the 29th annual DAD event as usual.
Dave Thompson has released a video on the website giving a first insight into how this year’s event will take shape.
In response to the news, it has evolved this year into an online platform which allows virtual visitors to experience a weeklong schedule of complimentary events.
It will start on Sunday, October 25.
DAD Virtual will continue to be pan disability, with a strong focus on providing information, advice and guidance on mobility and independent living.
There will be an Arts Marquee as well as an inclusive sports and hobbies showcase in the Sports Zone.
DADVirtual is completely free of charge, but it welcomes donations that will go towards making its 30th anniversary event in 2021 something extra special.
