Disability Awareness Equality Training

"Clare Kennelly has tailored and delivered Disability Awareness Training to our teams. While the initial training was site based, Clare has subsequently delivered the content through Zoom meetings. These sessions focus on Disabilty Awareness, Mental Health and Neurodiversity and have been adjusted to account for the impact that Covid 19 has on all of us. A great addition to any organisation looking to change the dial on Disability in the workplace."
