This takes place on the first day of the festival in the specially-erected Spiegeltent on Barkers Pool as does Health Between The Wars on Monday 24th, which looks at the chaos of health provision after the World War One and the ways in which it led to the creation of the National Health Service.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
