Other People’s Shoes

Other People’s Shoes disability awareness training was a real response by and with disabled people as experts by experience. It was one of the outcomes from our Disability Equality Duty work in that many disabled people having rightly identified the need to change the way we think about disabled people as a priority – in other words attitudes are the biggest barrier – change these and you start to unravel the others!

We have delivered training to staff in the local authority, local council members, a local social housing provider and others.

The training is delivered by local disabled people. If you are interested in our training package, please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements.

Overall Aim:

To change the way we think about disability.
This course aims to provide you with the confidence to ensure that disabled people (colleagues and local citizens) have equal access to and involvement in all areas of your organisation’s activity.
