Disability Equality Training Courses

Positive About Disabled People

In recent years, many public and private sector bodies have gradually realised that their work practices and policies fall far short of fulfilling the needs, rights and aspirations of disabled people who are their clients, customers and co-workers and that, in order to change this situation, they need to turn to disabled people for education and guidance.

From this realisation has grown the demand for Disability Equality Training run by disabled people, which aims to help people understand the meaning of disability, identify changes in work practice, and plan strategies to implement change.
