Improve your employees' disability awareness

We know from our annual employee survey results that people with disability in our sector report much higher rates of bullying and lower engagement with their organisation than the broader workforce. We have developed training with the foundational information we all need to confidently and effectively work with colleagues who may have a disability and make our sector a more inclusive and accessible place to work for all.

Disability awareness training module

The modules’ show what to KNOW, SAY and DO to contribute effectively to an inclusive workplace. The first module is for all employees and the second module for managers, aims to de-mystify what inclusive practices look and sound like.

How to implement
