Living Options can support your diversity and inclusion strategy by providing professional disability awareness training to your organisation.
Disability is an evocative subject and many people are unsure of how to communicate with disabled people without offending. Equally, many employers and managers are not equipped to ensure their disabled employees are treated equitably. Our disability awareness and inclusivity training courses cover all disabilities, including hidden disabilities, Autism, and Deaf awareness. We aim to help learners understand the challenges that disabled people can face and learn how to be more inclusive.
