About this training

Our 90 minute online course gives you an introduction to disability inclusion.

The session explains the social model of disability and the barriers disabled people experience. We use personal stories and experiences to show you how disability affects society and the world around you.

We’re based in the UK and our event times are BST or GMT. The session is hosted on Zoom.

This is a ticketed course with people from other organisations. If you want to run training for your employees only, we offer this session to businesses. Take a look at our introduction to disability training page for more information.
