I am not totally sure how I am going to deal with this section - I found so much interesting information at the Roadshow I attended which showcased services provided for Disabled People (half of which I had never heard of before) that I wanted a section where I could tell you a little about some of them (I will include links to their relevent websites).
I went to a Roadshow at the Tigers Rugby ground on Welford Road in Leicester. This Roadshow was a great place to learn about the difference services and support groups provided for Disabled People and their Carers, etc.
The title was rather apt - it was called "Choice Unlimited" www.choiceunlimited.co.uk/.
It had a wide variety of exhibitors ranging from well known ones like Action Deafness, RNIB, Police, Fire Brigade, etc, to some pretty obscure ones like, RICA (deal with roadtesting products and services for Disabled People), Irlen UK (deals with providing lenses which help alleviate the symptoms of Irlen Syndrome - an eye condition connected with sight and colour), and DEAP (who offer peer support to help Disabled People navigate their way through Benefit Claims, Hospital Appointments, etc).
I tried to pick places to showcase in the upcoming posts on this section which may be a little unusual, but who are either national or they have a national equivalent.
(Of course it doesn't necessarily mean that every single company, etc, featured on this section was part of the event but I hope to keep it going and include more companies or groups who offer some kind of support for Disabled People.)
