Insight Aberdeen

On 28th July 2012 DPHS Aberdeen took a part in Insight Aberdeen - the Annual Fayre for Third Sector organisation in the North East. As Aberdeen's leading charities that provides housing advice, information and advocacy for folk of all ages with disability and mobility needs, we provided a stall where people could meet our team and discuss informally as how can help them.

We were able to include a special surprise for our many visitors.  We had invited special guests who are our clients and artists: Teresa  and Mirek Kubis. They were present and displayed their art work, and we know that many folk enjoyed seeing this work, and discussing the two artists.

We would like to say thank you to all visitors who came to our stand at the Music Hall.
