Disability Equality Training: Understanding and addressing discrimination and stigma

Disability Equality Training (DET) has been developed by disabled people to address the experience of disability and its impact. The aim of DET is to enable people to:

  • understand the effects of disability;
  • identify changes in work practices; and
  • plan strategies to implement change.

The training will explore areas such as:

  • equality & diversity;
  • movements as drivers for change, such as the Disabled Peoples’ Movement;
  • different Models of Disability;
  • discrimination, stereotyping, prejudice, stigma & identity;
  • the application of the Equality Act 2010; and
  • the effects of Language.

Who is this session for?

This training is for anyone who wants to understand how disabled peoples’ experiences are shaped by the way in which society views them and how you could address this through your own individual and organisational practice. This includes:

  • people providing information, advice and guidance to disabled people;
  • people working in social care such as Personal Assistants;
  • organisations providing services and support to disabled people; and
  • people taking part in peer support groups.

This training will be delivered by Maggie Cameron, an experienced trainer and disabled activist. You can see Maggie’s Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/CameronEqualityTraining/
