Celebrate Ability returns for a third year

People will have the chance to find out about the raft of activities, organisations and support available for people with disabilities, their families, carers and care professionals as Celebrate Ability returns to the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange on 3 September.

The event, now in its third year, is organised by the West Norfolk Disability Forum and acts as a one-stop shop for visitors, so whether they need information about council tax benefit, mobility aids, community transport, sports clubs for people with disabilities or a career in a care related profession, they will find someone to help at Celebrate Ability.

Cllr Stephanie Smeaton, Chairperson of the West Norfolk Disability Forum, said, “Last year over 400 people attended Celebrate Ability and the feedback was really positive. It brings people face to face with a whole host of groups and organisations who can help them to access support, if they need it, and to make the most of living in west Norfolk.”

Deputy Mayor Cllr Gary Sandell who is a member of the West Norfolk Disability Forum will also be attending the event, he said, “As a member of the forum I have a keen interest in the issues that affect the everyday life of people with disabilities. I am very much looking forward to the event and hope lots of people will join us to make the most of the wealth of information and experience on offer.”

This year there will be approximately 21 exhibitors on hand to provide advice including Alzheimer’s Society, the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk Benefits Advice Team, Community Transport, CSV Vocal – Community Service Volunteers, Forward Futures, Guide Dogs, King’s Lynn Library, King’s Lynn Mobility, Norfolk Coalition of Disabled People, Norfolk Police Disability Advisory Forum, Park House – Leonard Cheshire Homes, Remap, Victim Support, West Norfolk Carers, West Norfolk Self Advocacy Project, West Norfolk Voluntary & Community Action (West Norfolk VCA) and West Norfolk Disability Information Service (WINDIS).
