Pure Innovations is inviting Stockport businesses to take part in its Disability Awareness Training programmes to improve awareness and understanding of the lived experience of disabled people.
Pure Innovations is a charity supporting people with a disability and other barriers to live more enhanced and independent lifestyles through a variety of projects and initiatives.
The In My Shoes Disability Awareness Training is delivered alongside guest speakers who will share their experiences and answer questions from attendees, alongside activities to help empathise with the challenges faced.
The training can be tailored to the business needs such as adding in information of access to work grants, more in depth about a particular condition or helping to think of a way to be more inclusive via interviews, equipment, ways of thinking, adaptations.
For more information about the training offer, and to book for your colleagues, contact Pure Innovation’s Community Engagement Coordinator, Emily Baker.
Alongside training opportunities for businesses, Pure Innovations is also seeking donations to support its Access Festival. The event offers the charity’s clients the unique chance to attend a live music festival that is tailored to suit their varied accessibility needs and take advantage of the mental health, social and wellbeing benefits of live music and the festival experience, which last year saw over 250 people attend, many of whom had never experienced live music before.
