We run disability equality and a range of disability awareness training events in Portsmouth, Southampton, and London. The awareness training sessions we currently offer are: Autism awareness, visual impairment and mental health. Most of our training features a session on disability equality, followed by an awareness session. This is so that the participants can understand that disability isn’t just a medical issue, but also a societal/human rights one.
Awareness training focuses on how a particular condition affects someone in their daily life. Practical advice is therefore given, to help those working/interacting with someone with that condition. Disability Equality, on the other hand, looks at how society affects a person’s experience of their impairment. This could include issues such as discrimination, hate crime and access.
We offer open training sessions regularly, so that a range of people can attend at a reasonable price. Furthermore, training venues are wheelchair accessible. Participants are also advised to inform us of any other additional needs they may have (eg. different written formats etc), so that we can make the appropriate arrangements in time.
