Exploring nature with people with disabilities
Wed 15 February 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 GMT
TCV Scotland has been working with a wide range of people with disabilities over the past two years in an innovative and inspiring programme called Exploring Nature. We are by no means experts in this area, but we are passionate about making nature and Scotland's wildlife accessible to everyone, regardless of age, background or disability. And we are keen to share ideas and inspire others to develop this important topic.
In this course we will share some of the programmes and activities we have been running as well as our approach to engaging people with disabilities. We will provide information and ideas around how to adapt a range of outdoor activities to suit people with different capabilities. Our course will include practical activities eg sighted guiding as well as useful games and activities for younger participants. We'll discuss some of the barriers for people with disabilities (real and perceived) and provide some information around funding available for developing programmes for people with disabilities.
