Together Training is designed and delivered by disabled young people, and equips participants with an understanding of:

  • Assumptions about disability and how to avoid them
  • How and why to ask questions to disabled young people
  • How to understand disability and society
  • The role of language and how to use it
  • The context disabled young people exist in
  • How to plan, deliver and review accessible & inclusive programs
  • Practicing how to use access & inclusion tools, such as;
    – Statements of Commitment
    – Access Keys
    – Social Scripts

Here’s what a 2022 participant said about the ‘together’ training:

The training has helped me to reframe my thinking to ensure my language and approach is more inclusive and accessible”
“I have never been to a training that has felt and been so inclusive of not only my needs but everyone around me. The content we covered in 4 hours was nothing short of impressive, but not once did we feel rushed or overloaded.”

This training is funded by the  Department of Social Services.
