Disability Awareness & Unconscious Bias Training
Disability Awareness Training in your organisation
Our training is fun, inspiring and emotive. We challenge the attitudes, perceptions and expectations of both disabled people and society as a whole in relation to 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.
Why should we attend?
We believe that there is no better way to become more comfortable around disability than by meeting a range of 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!
Training is delivered in your workplace or alternatively we have rooms in London, enabling you to come to us. Taylor your training to suit your client and staff needs.
