Disability Equality Training 

Do you know the different definitions of Disability? 

Want to find out more about the Models of Disability? 

What is your role in Disability Equality?  

How we can use language in an empowering way? 

 

Explore these questions and more through Equal Lives' Disability Equality Training. 

This training has been designed to allow those attending the course to reflect on the representation of disabled people across society; from the definitions in place, the language used to describe disabled people, how the media represents disabled people and the Models that have been created over the decades, which reframe how we view disabled people in society.

 

This training also puts the Social Model of Disability in focus. It is a model that was created by disabled people over 50 years ago. This Model of Disability highlights the barriers that are in place across society for those with a disability. Find out more about the representation of disability and your role in the Social Model of Disability during this interactive, informative and reflective training session.

Skills for Care Training 

As a Disabled People’s Organisation (DPO) we feel it is important to empower Service Users and their Personal Assistants to be the best employers and employees they can be; good support, and managing that support well, leads to the removal of barriers for disabled people. As a result, we applied for the DPO funding from Skills for Care to provide training to Individual Employers and their Personal Assistants (PA’s). Please see below for more information about the training courses we have organised. 

If you would like to book a place on a course please call the advice team on 01473 603876 or email suffolk@silmail.org. Places are limited so please book ASAP.
