New Year and New E-News!

Happy New Year from all the team at Disability Information Scotland.

This month sees the launch of our brand new E-Newletter. Last year Disability Information Scotland went through a transition which included us changing our name, re-branding, and launching our new website. We got such positive feedback, we decided that our monthly e-newsletter could do with a make-over too.
We hope you like the new look and we'd love to hear your feedback!

Gig Buddies is extremely proud to announce an additional support needs awareness event in collaboration with Independent Venue Week.
Independent Venue Week is a 7 day celebration of small music venues around the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out.
