About Warrington Disability Partnership
Warrington Disability Partnership (WDP) is an internationally acclaimed user led charity. With over 30 years’ experience of developing and delivering mobility and independent living services, our aim is to support disabled people and people living with long term health conditions.
Who are we?
Our team of staff and volunteers believe that information, advice and guidance are the main keys to independent living. Since our launch in 1991 we have designed, developed and, now deliver, 27 mobility and independent living services, many of which are based in our Centre for Independent Living (CIL).

Our President, Vice Presidents and Patrons
Our President and Vice Presidents are volunteers who have, and continue to go the extra mile for WDP.
The formal roots of WDP were founded in 1991 by three local disabled people, Eric James, Alan Shaw and Dave Thompson, whilst they were members of the Dallam Day Centre operated by Warrington Borough Council. Sadly Eric and Alan died in early 2015. Initially titled the Warrington Information Group for the Disabled they volunteered to collate information about access and facilities of local shops and services. This work was stored on a database titled INCHES (Information in Cheshire) which was operated by Cheshire County Council.
