Why Should You Teach Disability Etiquette & Access Awareness?

The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) and the Equality Act are aimed at stopping discrimination for services and in the workplace against people with disabilities.

Hence, it is vital for organisations today to be compliant. Also, paying attention to disability etiquette & access awareness will improve the customer experience for those with disability issues who access public facilities.

Who Is This Course Intended for?

This course is for trainers who wish to train anyone involved with needing to guide those with disabilities and ambulant users, for the sake of improving or maintaining accessibility in a location.

The following peoples, for example, can benefit from this training:
