Residents can find out about local services for disabled people and their families and carers at a free event in Swanley.
‘Access all areas’ is taking place at the White Oak Leisure Centre (BR8 7BT) from 11am to 3pm on Sunday 19 February 2023.
Local groups and organisations will showcase the help, advice and information available for anyone with physical or learning disabilities or memory problems.
The event will also support anyone who cares for someone with a disability with an opportunity to meet services providers face-to-face in a new, fully accessible leisure centre.
Cllr Lesley Dyball, Sevenoaks District Council’s Cabinet Member for People and Places, says:
“Around 18,000 people, or 15% of our population, have a disability. We want to help these residents live their best possible lives by promoting local services that allow greater access to the District and beyond.
“Many local public services and voluntary groups will be on hand offering support and advice to everyone who comes along.”
