Disability Awareness Training

The social model of disability proposes that what makes someone disabled is not their medical condition, but the attitudes and structures of society.

From 1 September 2018, the Discrimination (Jersey) Law 2013 will be amended to also include disability as a protected characteristic, bringing Jersey more in line with the UK as a jurisdiction that promotes modern standards of respect for individuals' rights and equality.

LibertyBus offer a broad range of disability awareness training that will ensure you are more aware of what disability is and how people with a disbaility should be treated.
