"Providing expert advice, guidance and training to businesses and not-for-profits. Supporting developed confidence, awareness and strategy that builds true inclusion of disabled people"
Who & What Is Celebrating Disability?
In a nutshell, we are a business here to support you and your team to feel confident around disabled people.
We support businesses and not-for-profits in a number of ways. A few examples could be:
- Helping you to gain and support more disabled customers
- Overcoming the barriers to hiring disabled people
- Understanding how to make your business more accessible
- Developing awareness of the access requirements of disabled children
Celebrating Disability offers a friendly and informative service, which I would encourage all Basingstoke companies to embrace. As a hotel, we have many areas to navigate and Esi did so with confidence and showed great knowledge.
How We Support
We have 3 main services on offer:
- Disability Awareness Training
- Disability Consulting
- Disability Audits
Disability Awareness Training encompasses a broad variety of subjects from general disability awareness to creating inclusive learning environments. Whatever the subject, all Celebrating Disability training sessions have one thing in common: we encourage inclusion and not purely awareness.
When we consult with a client, we may be looking at specific elements of the organisation's process. For example, understanding the barriers that present when hiring disabled people and the tools and strategies that can be implemented to overcome these.
A disability audit is a way for your business or organisation to understand where to start.
The Advantages Of Lived And Professional Experience
Lived experience of disability plays a big part in what informs the advice and support we offer when delivering disability awareness training, disability consulting and audits. Although we don't rely on lived experience alone. Why?
If Esi (Managing Director of Celebrating Disability) was delivering a training session and offered advice purely from her own lived experience as a wheelchair user, this would be very helpful if you were going to be interacting with Esi. However, as every person is unique, the minute you interact with another disabled person you're back at square one. Therefore, any support provided by Celebrating Disability will have the advantages of a background in the public and private sector. This way, you know any advice offered is practical and implementable.
