Disability Awareness Training

Online & face-to-face disability awareness training for businesses and not-for-profit organisations

Inclusion Equals Business Growth

Workplaces that support inclusion of disabled people can be essential to a happy, productive workforce. Did you know that under the Equality Act 2010, an employer cannot ask about an individual’s disability?

This is true of an employee in the workplace and of a candidate at recruitment stage. Knowing how to ask the right questions will ensure the individual receives the necessary support and feels that the business cares about their wellbeing.

The training sessions we have developed are designed to support your employees to get a good handle on disability awareness. This is important as your employees are more often than not the ones that will be working face-to-face with disabled people, whether those  disabled people are employees of your business or customers looking to buy a product or service.

Whilst all our training sessions are tailored to your specific goals and needs, the examples listed below are the most popular sessions that cover topics most businesses would like to know more about.

When you choose a Celebrating Disability training package, you can expect the following:

  •     Conversation about your goals and outcomes
  •     Tailored training session
  •     Trainer with lived experience of disability
  •     Handouts to complement the learning
  •     Half page summary of outcomes and recommendations
A very accessible session that gave me a lot of food for thought. Attending the session has given me the tools to start implementing changes into my work straightaway to ensure we are being more inclusive.

A Personalised Approach to Disability Awareness Training


  • Tailored content

    Theories of theories and facts are facts. However, the delivery of these theories are tailored to your specific workplace goals so that ideas are relevant for the people on the session

  • Tailored outcomes

    Our sessions are outcome focused and as such, we will ensure that we work with you to meet your desired outcomes for the disability awareness training. Don't worry, we'll work with you to find out what these are

  • Person centred approach

    At Celebrating Disability, we are the experts in our field. However, we want to make sure that our training is engaging and tangible. Therefore, we encourage and provide opportunities for discussion, debate and reflection from our participants



Our Style

Training sessions are interactive in nature.  When exploring an evocative subject such as disability, it is important that delegates feel confident to share ideas, concerns and biases.  As, when exploration is shared, ideas for implementation of strategy can begin to be formed.

Our Delivery

Many different delivery methods are utilised.   Interaction is a priority whilst taking into account learning styles and access requirements.  To learn more about how we ensure access requirements are covered, read this blog.



Let's talk

We Role Model Behaviours

We role model behaviour.  The lead trainer; Esi Hardy has a physical disability herself.  Therefore, she has her own access requirements that need to be considered.  Consideration of access requirements is a top priority in any training session. We offer many options to mitigate barriers to engagement due to access requirements.

Disability Awareness Training Supports Inclusion

For us, disability awareness training isn't just about developing an awareness of disability, it's about using that awareness to understand how to be more inclusive of disabled people.  We do this by supporting our delegates to feel confident and knowledgeable about the barriers that disabled people face and then developing skills to find solutions to these barriers.  This way, we can support your employees, associates and colleagues to be confident and competent when engaging and supporting disabled people.

Whether you are looking for group disability awareness training for your team, a one-to-one session for an individual employee or disability sessions over lunchtime, Celebrating Disability can help.

When considering your training needs, this blog "Disability Awareness Training: What's Your Goal?" may support you in this process.  Click here to read the blog.

Defining Your Goals Disability Awareness Training Goals

Disability awareness and disability inclusion in the workplace can seem a big topic. Especially when your organisation is relatively new to the subject. When you get in touch with us, we will generally ask you what you are looking to gain from your session. We will guide you through this conversation to ensure that any goals and outcomes we come up with together are relevant for the participants whilst working towards your goal.

We have developed three questions to help you consider your goals and outcomes for any disability inclusion event with Celebrating Disability.  To receive these questions via email, simply click the link below.
