PARENTS, carers and professionals learned more about organisations which can offer support to children and adults affected by disability.
Visitors to the Apne Bachay (Our Children) Disability Awareness Event in Dewsbury, said it had given them the opportunity to network and get further information.
The event was sponsored by Kirklees Social Services Community Liaison and funded by the Children's Fund Kirklees.
The Apne Bachay service, also financed by the children's fund, caters for ethnic-minority disabled children aged five to 13 in the Dewsbury area.
To access the service, a child's needs or disability must be diagnosed by a consultant paediatrician and/or recognised by at least two professionals.
It provides support to the children and their parents or carers.
More than 25 organisations offered information and examples of sensory equipment, auditory and visual stimulants, and communication methods.
Apne Bachay officer Samina Zafir said: "It was a really good opportunity for everyone in the community to learn about new and existing services and professionals to meet with other organisations.
"Feedback from parents and carers has shown that not everyone is aware of which services are out there to support them."
