Disability Awareness Day - Sunday July 10th

Did you know that Disability Awareness Day (DAD) is the biggest non-profit disability exhibition led by volunteers in the UK?
It is held by Warrington Disability Partnership and attracts more than 25,000 people every year.   So, what is the day raising awareness to specifically?
The day aims to raise awareness to the voluntary, statutory and private services available to people with disabilities.   Having this knowledge will allow people to be more independent. 
Other ways to promote independence will involve putting forward equipment and showing what disabled people are capable of achieving in fields like sports, arts and entertainment.
With this in mind, the Library would like to draw your attention to some of the many excellent resources it offers, including the Disabled Living Foundation online resource as well as numerous e-journals such as Disability and Rehabilitation and, from Science Direct, the Disability and Health Journal.
We would also like to draw your attention to the great work being done in the area of Inclusive Practice by the Disability and Learner Support team.
Don't forget to check SOLAR for all your Library needs.
