The ManchesterAbility network is designed to promote ideas, share best practice and develop an active forum where disability issues can be discussed openly and honestly and where solutions can be found to common problems. The launch is taking place at KPMG in Manchester from 10am – 2pm and will include lunch.

The launch programme will include:-

  • Video message from Sarah Newton MP – Minister of State for Disabled People, Work and Health
  • Graeme Whippy MBE – Disability Consultant (previously with Channel 4)
  • Sarah Simcoe – Director of Consultancy at Purple Space
