The 3 PEAKS Challenge
On the 19th May 2018 Disability Direct has the Derbyshire 3 Peaks challenge trek to raise money to support our work helping us make positive changes to the lives of local disabled people and their families.
The route is 23 miles over Bleaklow, Black Hill and Kinder Scout with a total ascent over the whole day of 1040m and with the aim of completing within 12 hours. The trek covers some pretty challenging terrain but also some breath taking views. We have also arranged a Qualified Mountain Leader and 2 nights accommodation
The Do What You Want directory is an online listing of services available to or specifically for disabled people, older people and carers.
Once a year we bring the directory to life with a local event. The event aims to introduce disabled people, older people and carers to local services to reduce isolation, improve independent living, share volunteering and employment opportunists and involve people in activities and hobbies.
Take a look HERE for images and comments from visitors and exhibitors at the last event.
