Disability Awareness Day


Disability Awareness Day was held across the UK yesterday. The annual event includes a large disability exhibition in Warrington which aims to show what disabled people can do throughout life and work.

Many people with disabilities use Turn2us services. Find out more about our resources and how they can help you if you have a disability and are struggling financially.
