Disability awareness training in your business

The key to an inclusive workplace is informed and confident staff.
Our training is unique, fun, engaging and emotive. The sessions are interactive and we never use PowerPoint! We challenge the attitudes and perceptions of disability.

We aim to remove the embarrassment of social interaction when working with disabled people by building your confidence and teaching you simple communication tips in a relaxed, interactive learning environment.

Learn about a range of impairments: deaf awareness, visual impairments, physical impairments, language and terminology, disability and communication

Why train with us?

We believe that there is no better way to become more comfortable around disability than by meeting people with different impairments.

Our trainers have a range of disabilities and are here to remove the fear factor so often associated with disability. They’ve heard it all before and welcome your questions, so don’t be shy and get stuck in!

TYPICAL QUESTIONS WE GET ASKED

Can I say ‘see you later’ to a blind person?

Would I refer to someone as a dwarf, midget or little person if they’re small?

Should I get down to the same level as a wheelchair user, or is that patronising?

Learning objectives

We deliver training at your offices or a venue of your choice.

By the end of our time together, you and your colleagues will understand the communication, etiquette and language issues around disability and feel confident putting the tips and advice we give you in to practice in your daily lives.

You will have developed an understanding of the barriers that disabled people experience when accessing services and learn ways to overcome them.

You’ll be able to recognise the role that attitudes towards disability play in discrimination and how they might need to be reshaped. Everyone in the session will have many opportunities to discuss and ask questions in a relaxed and safe environment.
