These sessions are a brief introduction to Disability Equality and are designed to be of real practical use. They are for everyone wanting to know more about ways of removing obstacles for disabled and Deaf people and for disabled and Deaf people who are unclear about how to talk about their requirements and the way they work.

We’ll look at the Social Model of Disability, the legal framework (briefly) and aspects of language and terminology. You’ll have opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues that are important to you as well as be able to come away with practical strategies.

The space is fully accessible. The sessions have been developed as part of mentoring programme, Unify and Progress (UP). Unify and Progress (UP) has been funded by Arts Council England. UP has been created by Penny Pepper, supported by Kate Lovell & Theatre Royal Stratford East, producer Renaissance One, PR Laura Horton.
