How you will benefit from this training

Disability equality training is vital for all those who work with disabled people, in whatever capacity. 
20% of the UK population is disabled. You will have disabled employees, colleagues, customers, volunteers, pupils and service users. 

Our disabled trainers will help you understand how to make sure these people are included and treated equally.

  • Gain a clearer understanding of the issues faced by disabled people in their daily lives. 
  • Learn the correct language to ensure disabled colleagues, students or customers are included more efficiently. 
  • Learn the correct etiquette to ensure disabled colleagues, students or customers are included more efficiently.
