As part of our commitment to deliver the best‘Summer of World Athletics’, we wanted to ensure all our staff are disability aware; so ahead of the beginning of the World Para World Championships we arranged a ½ day Disability Equality training session withNimbusled by Martin Austin Managing Director and Founder.
The training included:
Understanding what disability is
Understanding the difference between disability equality and disability diversity
An awareness of legislation and legal obligations relating to disabled people including The Equality Act
Understanding what is and what isn’t appropriate conduct / terminology around disabled people
Understanding how to improve access for disabled people – andwhy
Understanding the benefits to our team

The training was well received and we are planning to offer this training to our staff at head office in 2018.
