Find out more about our training.

Our training is unique. It’s fun, engaging and emotive. The sessions are interactive and we never use PowerPoint! We challenge the attitudes and perceptions of disability.

We aim to remove the embarrassment of social interaction when working with disabled people by building your confidence and teaching you simple communication tips in a relaxed, interactive learning environment.
