Disability Equality Training - November

Rathmines Pembroke Community Partnership would like to invite representatives from the Gateway Project to participate in free Disability Equality Training being offered to community groups and services in the Rathmines/Pembroke area. The training will take place on Monday 29th November from 9.30am - 4.30pm in the Camden Court Hotel, Camden Street. Lunch will be provided.

The training will be very participative, practical and dynamic and aims to:

Explore attitudes to people with disabilities in Ireland today, and discover how these impact on people with disabilities and on the efficiency and effectiveness of services.
Provide participants with information on what is required of them according to Irish Law.
Provide participants with tips and hints on how to include people with disabilities and highlight how this will improve overall customer service or community participation at little to no cost.
Answer any queries participants might have on including people with a disability in their particular group or service.

This training is guaranteed to be invaluable for anyone interacting with the public on a daily basis and will provide a solid foundation on disability equality awareness. CSOs National Disability Survey 2006 highlighted that 54% of people with a disability cited difficulty in taking part in community life. Become part of a movement to change this starting with raising awareness among your group or staff on disability equality.

If you are interested in this training please contact Mairead McCann before Friday 19th November by e-mail on or phone on 4965558 with the names and contact details of those interested and whether they have any specific dietary requirements.

Places limited so early booking is advised.
