Country of origin: UK

Disability Matters is a free training package for anyone who works with people with a disability (in health, social care, education and the community). Developed by a consortium of experts led by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and including the British Academy of Childhood Disability, Contact a Family and the Council for Disabled Children, it provides e-learning resources that enable employees to reflect, challenge and positively change their own fears, ideas, attitudes and beliefs towards disability in children and adults.
