There is a lot to see with over 250 exhibitors at the event. These range from equipment suppliers, transport, holidays and leisure through to employment, support groups and services.
In addition, we also have a Sports Zone that has Scuba Diving, an arts Marquee and a central arena with family entertainment.
What is D.A.D. about?
Disability Awareness Day is the world’s largest ‘not for profit’, voluntary-led disability fair. As a result, last year there were over 21,000 visitors to the event!
DAD is about people with any disability. We promote a ‘can do’ approach to people with disabilities in both their work and home life. The show has three main goals:
- Firstly we highlight the availability of statutory, private or voluntary services that let disabled people stay independent.
- Secondly we promote equipment that could maintain and improve independence, not just what is offered by statutory service providers. We want everyone to see the best and/or latest designs.
- Finally we provide the chance to showcase what disabled people can do, in the field of Sport, Arts and Entertainment.
Veterans Hearing Fund
We will be at this years event to talk to UK military Veterans about the Royal British Legion Fund. Any veterans with any hearing issues may be able to get financial aid for hearing aids.
So please spread the word about DAD. Share their website on your social media, or just share this page. Thank you and see you there!
