Darlington Association on Disability (DAD) - FREE Skills and Social Sessions


Darlington Association on Disability (DAD) is offering FREE skills and social sessions at the Independent Living Hub in West Crescent. The free sessions are available to disabled people aged 13 and over and are also available for unpaid carers.

Disabled people and carers can try gardening, arts and crafts, pony therapy and many other opportunities. Other activities include training courses in life skills - everything from first aid and communication skills to autism awareness and disability equality.

One-to-one personal independence support sessions are also available to help people develop practical skills, such as travelling by train, budgeting, computers, internet safety and cooking.

The Hub has lots of social sessions too, including the gentle 'Wiggle and Giggle' fitness classes.

For more information please see the attached posters below.
