About the training:

Run by our accessibility coordinator, Minna, this session will ask:

  • Do you understand what neurodiversity is?
  • Do you think you or a person you know may be neurodiverse?
  • Do you operate in a way that is accessible to all people?
  • Do you understand your responsibilities towards accessibility?

The session will include:

  • Considering neurodiversity: what it is and what it is not.
  • Disclosure: do we need to know?
  • Barriers: what causes any perceived barriers and how can we make changes?
  • Accessibility: the dignity of the individual
  • Questions and answers: a change to ask without judgement

We at Caritas, believe that everyone should have opportunity to participate in all activities. This includes people who use our services, employees and volunteers.

Together we will work alongside individuals to find inclusive ways of working that suit them best.  We seek to welcome, integrate, and support the participation of all people by making our projects accessible.  If you face barriers because of your physical, mental and emotional, learning, sensory and/or communications needs, please let us know.
