“Disability Positive” Seminar & Accreditation

Would you like to be recognised as a person who has a “Disability Positive” attitude?

Our “Disability Positive” Seminar and Accreditation is aimed at those who want to increase their disability awareness and confidence in interacting with disabled people, whether colleagues or customers.  It has a practical, informal approach to ensure maximum participant enjoyment and learning.

At the end of the half-day seminar, participants have the option of applying for “Disability Positive” Accreditation, the only accreditation scheme of its type in NI.  Those who pass the accreditation assessment (all information needed for accreditation is provided during the seminar) will receive a “Disability Positive ” logo and certificate.  These can be displayed at work, on uniforms and CVs etc. to promote awareness that the person is “Disability Positive”.
