Disability Equality Training

My training focuses on making the removal of disabling barriers a reality for people with impairments.  Client-centred and bespoke, I use a range of delivery styles in order to maximise the learning experience for all participants.

I create a friendly and non-judgemental environment in which to deliver material that is imaginative and fun. My delivery includes lively group activities, interesting debate, thought-provoking video, and visual and written resources.
