Inclusive Meetings Training

People with cognitive disability are often excluded from committees and consultations. The Voice at the Table Project seeks to create change and ensure that people with cognitive disability can have a real and equal voice on boards, committees, and consultations. This includes people with intellectual disability and acquired brain injury.

What do we do?

  • Training for people with cognitive disability about speaking up
  • Inclusive meeting training for organisations.
  • Meetups for people with cognitive disability who have done training.

Who is the inclusive meetings training for?

Staff working for organisations aiming to ensure people with cognitive disabilities have a genuine say. For example, for committee members, support staff, or people organising consultations.

What do you learn?

  • Why inclusive practice is important.
  • To identify and understand the barriers to participation for people with cognitive disability.
  • Ways to make your meetings welcoming.
  • skills and techniques for getting people with cognitive disability to open up and speak confidently.

How is training delivered?

  • Online or in person.
  • Training is co-designed and co-facilitated by people with cognitive disability in line with the VATT motto, ‘Nothing about us without us’.
  • Using plain and easy English.
