Tel:07789716097 I specialise in providing bespoke training packages to Businesses and Organisations in supporting them to comply with the Equality Act 2010. Covering Disability Equality and Diversity. Quality training enables businesses to improve the services they provide, increases potential customers and can save thousands of pounds in compensation claims. Being a Disabled Person and wheelchair user gives me an insight of the types of barriers faced by disabled people when trying to participate within the job market or consumer market and also the risks to businesses, in terms of lack of understanding their responsibilities under the Equality Act and potential profit losses. Keeping up to date with Government Legislation makes economical sense to any forward thinking business and the best way to do that is to invest in some quality training. I can deliver just that!
