Disability Equality Training
With its focus on Disability Equality Theory, the Medical & Social Model of disability, this programme gives participants an opportunity to think about how they may be able to tackle disability discrimination within their professional roles. Because Disability Equality promotes a community response, it is highly effective in helping teams to enable the fuller participation of whole communities thereby including disabled people. This session should help people understand of the specific character of disablism and the need for positive action. The session helps people consider small changes in operational activity such as removing the barriers in order to reduce marginalisation. The programme also helps people consider the broader systemic issues, giving participants an insight into the strategic imperatives linked to ethical commitment.
This unconference is being planned, Gloucestershire be prepared!!!
It's been a busy year having prepared and delivered a new programme on Inclusive Practice Development for Social Service Teams across the Yorkshire region.
Ongoing workshops, keynotes and presentations
Inclusive Practice Development
The programme benefits participants who have already been introduced to the key concepts explored in Disability Equality Training and Equality & Diversity. The aim of the programme is to aid the development of inclusive practice, that is specific activity undertaken to address inequality and secure better belonging for vulnerable groups at risk of marginalisation in our communities. While certain groups do share protected characteristics under the law, other groups may be equally at risk in the localities served by our services. Furthermore, this programme helps people conceptualise the effect of multiple labels and layered prejudice on groups and the need for greater personalisation to support people’s sense of control over their lives.
