Warrington Disability Partnership

Information Advice and Guidance

Warrington Disability Partnership was founded on the philosophy that “information can be the key to independent living”. Our staff and volunteers have decades of experience and a vast array of knowledge about local, regional and national support groups and services.

Fact sheets and/or leaflets are available about all WDP services and we have thousands of leaflets from support services available to Warrington residents.

A full range of information is available from our Centre for Independent Living and Shopmobiity Servce.
