Event description

Description

Disability Equality training in the UK, first started over 30 years ago as a way of tackling and challenging stereotypical attitudes of disability. Furthermore, training sessions have since been led by people with first-hand experience of disability.

Disability Equality training gives participants from various establishments, the chance to see disability as a human rights issue, which is based on the ideas of the Social Model. This means that the training explores the various barriers that people with disabilities face and encourages participants to think about what can be done to remove these barriers. This is carried out through various methods, for example, group work, activities and discussions.
