Our Information Services
Warrington Disability Partnership was originally founded on the philosophy that information can be the key to independent living. Volunteers at WIGD (Warrington Information Group for the Disabled) collated over 3000 individual records including accessible pubs, restaurants, support groups, services, mobile hairdressers, equipment suppliers, etc. In an attempt to share this information as widely as possible we developed and launched the Warrington Disability Helpline which still operates today on 01925 240064.
We promote the Helpline throughout the town via Health and Social Care staff, local networks, fetes and carnivals, newspaper articles, and innovative areas including buses and the back of the door of accessible toilets.
LeafletsWe have a wide range of advisory and informative leaflets from various voluntary organisations, service providers, and businesses. These are available to pick up from the Market Information Stall, the Centre for Independent Living, or by calling 01925 240064.
HelplineThe Helpline is available Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm and is staffed by volunteers most of whom have direct experience of disability. Call 01925 240064.
Market StallOpen six days a week Monday to Saturday 10am to 4pm. An interesting quote was used to describe this innovative service "Where else in the country can one pick up a five pound bag of potatoes, a pair of mens socks, a lightbulb and a leaflet on MS? Warrington Market!"
