Disabled people, families, and carers, participated in an inclusive walk in Cannon Hill Park on Monday 25 June, to help raise awareness of the needs of the people with complex disabilities.
Organised by the national disability charity, Sense, the walk is one of ten taking place across the country for Deafblind Awareness Week (24 – 30 June 2018). The walks promote well-being, and healthy living, and also provide an opportunity to engage with local communities.
The participants came from TouchBase Pears, the new community and disability service which serves Birmingham.
Jon Fearn, from Sense, led the walk. He said:
“Walking is a great for health and wellbeing, and also to make connections. It was great that so many people could come out to support us on today’s walk.”
