Stepping Forward works to facilitate and accelerate access to essential services, information, resources and life opportunities so that all people affected by disability can live a full life.
Disability confident training, Promoting Disability Awareness in Schools
With funding from The Big Lottery’s Awards for All, Stepping Forward has joined forces with JustDifferent to provide innovative, exciting and educational Primary and Secondary workshops on disability and difference.
Workshops sessions are specifically designed to engage children and young people into thinking more imaginatively about the world they live in, and the diversity of the people within it. Created and presented by disabled adults using a variety of simple interactive methods, the workshops encourage children onto a path of learning that is captivating and enlightening.
If you are a school in Berkshire and the surrounding counties and would like a free disability workshop at your school, please get in touch with us at email@example.com.
