Disability Awareness Training

This workshop has been designed to develop skills that will help you communicate and work with disabled people.

By creating an ‘Accessible Taranaki’ we play a major role in promoting independence. Working together through this program will create opportunities to rethink ideas about disability, shift perceptions about disabled people, and encourage creative and effective designs for inclusive services.

Our goal is to bring you the most accessible and helpful information available.
