Who are Disability Champions?

Disability Champions should be colleagues from within your own organisation who are passionate about disability and health. The roles are voluntary, carried out above-and-beyond the employees’ regular duties, with their managers’ agreement.

Champions can provide information on services and resources, help to promote disability activities and campaigns or gather suggestions and issues around disability to feed back to the business - which can inform strategy.

What will your team learn on this course?

  • An understanding of disability and twelve specific conditions
  • Spotting and responding to signs that someone is struggling with their health or disability at work
  • Making the most of the Disability Champion role within your organisation and ensure they are supported

Participants will be able to signpost colleagues to support and information, to raise awareness and to identify and share good practice. They will also be equipped to work with key internal stakeholders, to feed back ideas and suggestions and to promote wellbeing in general.

This course is designed to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to undertake the role of Disability Champion in the workplace.

Information specific to your company can be added throughout the course, making it immediately applicable in the workplace.
