Disability Awareness

Promoting Equal Access

Working with local schools and colleges to provide disability awareness sessions

Our disability awareness sessions give children and young people an insight and understanding into what it is like to live with a disability, whilst enhancing knowledge, acceptance and attitudes.

We believe that there is no better way to become more comfortable around disability than by meeting people living with disabilities. Feeling comfortable and encouraged to ask questions, removing the fear factor so often associated with disability.

Sessions are developed and delivered by our Disability Awareness Officer Jo, and her team of trained volunteers. They all have years of both professional and personal experience of living with disabilities.

Phase two of our disability awareness plan is to start providing these opportunities to local businesses and organisations.
