Sunday 15th July was host to the world’s largest ‘not for profit’ voluntary-led disability exhibition, Disability Awareness Day, held in the beautiful Walton Hall Gardens in Warrington. The show consisted of around 250 exhibitors, from holidays, leisure, support groups and education services, which is where the University of Chester was involved. We were there to highlight the support and services that our Disability and Inclusion team offer within our Student Futures Support. Our support provides confidential advice and guidance to students with specific learning differences, long standing health conditions, mental health difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and sensory difficulties.

Our specialist support team on both the Parkgate Road (Chester) and Warrington Campus, support students with information, advice on accessing additional funding, assistance with reasonable adjustments whilst studying, and more. We also have Academic Skills Tutors who provide specialist advice and guidance for workshops, and one to one specialist study skills sessions.

Throughout the day, the event showcased opportunities to get involved with activities such as sports, arts and entertainment. There was also an exciting line up in the main arena which included REACH Sled Dogs charity, Vale Royal Falconry Display, Widnes Martial Arts Display Team and Katumba, the drum ‘n’ brass band.
