Disability Matters is an innovative programme providing free online resources for those who work or engage with disabled children and young people (from 0-25 years) and their families. The programme boasts over 50 e-learning topics and a number of training resource packs to support face to face group learning at a local level.
All the resources in Disability Matters have been co-produced with disabled young people and parent carers, along with other experts in the field. The sessions aim to improve the outcomes they have said matter for them.
The programme addresses the challenges and barriers facing disabled young people by encouraging individuals to reflect on and positively change their attitudes and beliefs about disability. It also tackles the inequalities that disabled children, young people and their families tell us that they face in their daily lives.
The content is full of real stories of lived experiences as well as top tips on what we can all do better to improve communication, inclusion and make everyone welcome in activities, organisations and services.
Disability Matters targets those who work or volunteer with disabled children, young people and their families. We also hope the resources will be just as accessible and useful for disabled children, young people and parents themselves.
