DAP’s Friday Hub aims to give disabled people, those with long-term illness and carers the confidence to claim the benefits and support they are entitled to.

Nick Thomas-Symonds said: “The Friday Hub will enable people to just drop-in with questions, on everything from benefit claims, to care plans and home adaptations. DAP has a very experienced team, and this will be a fantastic service for our community.”
