Winner of the National Diversity Awards 2013
Entrepreneur of Excellence Award for Disability
Dave Thompson set up the ‘Warrington Disability Partnership.’ Not only the Founder, Dave is also the Chair of the enterprise, which provides a leading edge Centre for Independent Living for those in his area. Through his business, disabled people can seek advice on and receive access to anything ranging from equipment, IT training, holiday provision through to complex support on a whole range of independent living related issues. His business employs over 40 people and, additionally, 200 individuals volunteer. Most of these are disabled people. WDP organises an annual awareness day that last year attracted 250 exhibitors and 28,000 visitors. The partnership Dave has established has negotiated a myriad of contracts with public and private sector concerns, all of which have resulted in not just a successful business, but services of very high quality for disabled people.
