Disability Advice & Information in Peterborough


Purple Tuesday

Whilst Disability Peterborough is strongly supportive of Purple Tuesday (The UK’s accessible shopping day) event taking place nationally on 13th November 2018, unfortunately this year the very short notice given to us means that we could not participate as we would have liked to. We have already started talking to colleagues in Peterborough about events that we can work on for next year. If any disabled individuals or local businesses would like to join us we are putting together a working group to support the 2019 event.
