Local MP Martin Docherty-Hughes has praised the work of a local advice charity providing support to disabled people in West Dunbartonshire.
The Big Disability Group based in Clydebank welcomed the MP to their advice hub on Dumbarton Road which offers services to people with disabilities and long-term conditions and their carers.
MP Martin met with the charity’s founder Kevin Crawford, and staff and volunteers at The Big Disability Hub, to discuss issues facing West Dunbartonshire’s disabled community.
The visit comes ahead of the seventh annual Big Disability Open Day taking place on Tuesday 2nd May (10am-3pm) at Dalmuir CE Centre. The event is free to attend and brings together local groups and organisations offering support to people living with disabilities, their families and carers.
Martin Docherty-Hughes MP said:
“I work closely with The Big Disability Group and other local organisations dedicated to supporting disabled people and their families in West Dunbartonshire.
“I’m grateful to the volunteers and staff at the Big Disability Hub who work tirelessly to help many of my constituents finding things tough just now. The services provided here by Kevin and the team are invaluable in helping people with disabilities to live independent and fulfilling lives.
“The upcoming Big Disability Open Day in Dalmuir is a great opportunity to hear from a range of local groups and charities providing advocacy, advice and support to families across West Dunbartonshire.
“I look forward to the event which is now in its seventh year and set to be the biggest yet. With more than 50 local groups and organisations attending, I’d encourage people to drop-in to Dalmuir CE Centre between 10am and 3pm on 2nd May to hear about the support available.”
