Who is it for?

  • This learning session is designed for anyone who is wanting to take action to make the opportunities they provide more accessible. You could be a sports provider, running a venue, or providing arts-based activities.  If you would like to make sure that what you provide is as accessible as possible for disabled people and people with mental health challenges, this course will support you in this.
  • Each workshop will comprise 12 participants.

  • Each event will run from 9.30am and end at 3pm.
  • Covid restrictions permitting, these sessions will be held in person, at Overton House in Cheltenham.  If this isn’t possible then the sessions will take place online.
