Disability Pride 2019
Disability Pride is an exciting event coming again to Norfolk on Sunday 29th September 2019 at The Forum Norwich 10:00am – 4:00pm. Everyone is welcome. The event will be a celebration of disabled people and the diversity of our community. It follows on from the successful Disability Pride event held last year
There will be plenty of activities taking place that highlight the skills and abilities of disabled people and challenge negative stereotypes. We will also have a marketplace bringing together individuals, groups and businesses to engage with disabled people, opening up conversations and opportunities to develop inclusive services and activities. You can find out about the days events here: https://equallives.org.uk/get-involved/disability-pride/disability-pride-whats-happening-on-the-day/
The event is free to attend and The Forum has good transport links, is accessible and has blue badge parking. There will be an accessible Mobiloo toilet available which offers a hoist and bench and there are Changing Places available at Intu Chapelfield and Vauxhall Community Hub.
Disability Pride is being run in partnership with Equal Lives, The Forum, Norfolk County Council and University of East Anglia with .
Ben Reed CEO of Equal Lives said “There is currently no event like this, it has been designed as a celebration, for people to come together and take part in the day’s activities to support an inclusive community. With as many as 100,000 disabled people living in East Anglia, we are hoping this event is the start of something big and it will continue to grow for years to come.”
There will also be additional ‘fringe’ events running either side of the main event in support of Disability Pride and you can find out about these here: https://equallives.org.uk/get-involved/disability-pride/disability-pride-fringe-events/
