“Toucan is a really worthwhile charity that produces lots of work supporting equality in the workplace for people with disabilities. I would recommend people get in touch to find out more about what they do and how they can help you. Highly recommend.”

Participant – Gethin Jones Portsmouth, 19 July 2017

“I was very impressed with the training I experienced with Madissa and David, I feel very motivated to consider now how we can make the Social Model of Disability a priority in our communities and I have so much more awareness of the issues faced by people with sight impairment. I recommend Toucan-Diversity because of the professional and motivating way they deliver their training.”

Participant – Tim Mason, Rotary Social Innovation SE Hampshire, Portsmouth 11 July 2017

‘Many thanks for inviting me to partake in the Disability Equality & Inclusive Practice training day. Hearing the real life experiences from Madissa and Tom, especially in regards to the education system provided an invaluable insight into the obstacles a person with a disability can encounter in mainstream schools, college, university and daily life. Having engaged in your training my attitude towards people who live with a disability remains unchanged, however my attitude towards societies perception and handling of disability related issues has changed. Although progress has been made there is still a lot more which can be done, and this training is a crucial tool in delivering such a message.’

“I feel now equipped with the correct language and etiquette. This training has made me properly aware of my attitude and that I will work hard on this to be more inclusive when around disabled people”

Participant – John Pounds Centre – Portsmouth, 25 November 2015

“I am very grateful that Madissa and Tom shared with us their personal experience. It was very insightful and helpful. The structure of the day was very good. Breaks with tea/coffee well planned. The venue was very good. Team work (division into smaller groups for discussion) helped to know other people and share our experience. As a father of an autistic son I hope to understand his needs better. Again, Tom’s contribution was excellent.”

Revd Dr Piotr Ashwin-Siejkowski, Hampton, 8 June 2016

“Best thing of the training was that it was delivered by facilitators who have different conditions. Extremely useful for my work. Thank you for a brilliant training session.”

Participant Rose Road Charity, Southampton, 17 March 2016

“To be aware of causing offence when not using the correct language and etiquette. Also, I feel less fear when dealing with people with autism as I have a much better understanding of what they are going through. Excellent Training!”

Participant – John Pounds Centre – Portsmouth, 25 November 2015

“This training will be beneficial for parents and anyone working with children and adults who live with a disability. I enjoyed the fact that the two speakers talked about their own experiences and obstacles. This has helped me understand it better. Enjoyed the video – very powerful message.’

Participant from Social Services Department, Hounslow

The training went way above my expectations and really brought home to me the issues that adults and children with disabilities face. Your training session helped me to understand the value of equality and diversity and it helped me to understand just how much can be achieved if the needs for children and adults can be met. I feel much better resources to help my daughter to achieve her potential. Thank you for an outstanding training session.
