Our Disability Awareness Seminar is a great foundation for those wanting to gain a better understanding of what it is like to live with a disability and for people interested in volunteering with us. We would encourage anyone who wants to learn how to be more inclusive to join us.

The day includes:

  • personal experiences of disability shared by those living with a disability
  • communication techniques
  • biblical perspective of disability
  • common attitudes and beliefs about disability
  • practical simulations and debriefing
  • demonstration of adaptive equipment

By attending the seminar you will be:

  • more aware of barriers faced by those living with a disability
  • challenged to consider your attitudes and beliefs about disability
  • provided an opportunity to hear from and talk with people who live with a disability
  • equipped to help remove barriers for communication and interaction

This day is hugely subsidised as we want to ensure anybody interested is able to attend.
