Disability Awareness

Promoting Equal Access

Providing disability awareness training

Local schools and colleges

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.

Local organisations and businesses

We offer disability awareness training for the staff and volunteers of local organisations and businesses.
