On the 20th August 2022 I shall be jumping out of a perfectly good plane. This is to raise awareness and funds for Disability Advice North East Suffolk (DANES) to help them continue to support the disabled community within the Waveney area.

DANES is a long established, independent charity that supports local people with a disability and those who care for someone with a disability. We don't charge for our services and so constantly seek funding to be able to continue our work. DANES provides practical advice & support to help those with visible and hidden disabilities or long-term health conditions. The charity works hard to retain the independence and improve the wellbeing of disabled people and their careers. 

Everyone at Steel and Co understand that disability can impact any of us at any time, please help us to be here when it matters.  

Thank you to all of you for your help

Not all disabilities are visible -some are not immediately obvious. Living with a hidden disability can make daily life more challenging for many people and it can be difficult for others to recognize, acknowledge or understand the challenges you face.
