“Yet another inspiring awareness workshop from Toucan Diversity. Both speakers were inspiring, passionate and informative, delivering their own personal stories to raise current awareness. Thank you all for the opportunity to attend!”

-Gary Clark , Project and Development Manager

A great training session run by young people who are able to share their experience first-hand. It reminded me of how attitudes and approaches to disability have changed only relatively recently, and that there is still a long way to go to having a really inclusive society. I will strive to make this happen as much as I can.

– Clair Lawrence, General Manager, Otakar Kraus Music Trust

We highly recommend the training Toucan Diversity delivered to our parents. It gave them a real insight into the issues people with disability face. All parents got a lot out of it!

– Mark Griffiths, CEO of School and Family Works

“After attending the Toucan Diversity training at the Gunwharf Quays Academy, I left with a better understanding of the current situations and difficulties that people with disabilities face every day of their lives. The training was extremely thorough and the Trainers were professional in explaining the information and I left feeling motivated to improve the accessibility across our shopping centres. I would highly recommend the training to all employees in any business.”

Jay Wood Guest Services Manager, Gunwharf Quays.

“Toucan Diversity has delivered several Disability Equality & Inclusive Practice Training sessions in Richmond and Hampton. I personally believe that training delivered by people with personal insight will make a difference for disabled people in general. As the chair of Me too & Co I highly recommend this training for all as it gives attendees a unique experience and a greater understanding of the issues people with disabilities face on a daily basis. Our staff and volunteers found the training excellent and it had a lasting impact in their everyday attitudes towards disabled people.”

– John Doherty, Chair of Me too & Co

Toucan Diversity provided an excellent Disability Equality Training session for the Holly Lodge Centre volunteers. The training was informative and well presented, the exercises for the volunteers were thought provoking and impactful. I would recommend this training session for all.

By the end of the sessions I had a better understanding of the challenges faced every day by people with diverse disabilities. Looking forward to attend more training sessions and would recommend it to family, friends and colleagues”

“I was very impressed with the training I experienced with Madissa and David, I feel very motivated to consider now how we can make the Social Model of Disability a priority in our communities and I have so much more awareness of the issues faced by people with sight impairment. I recommend Toucan-Diversity because of the professional and motivating way they deliver their training.”

– Participant – Tim Mason, Rotary Social Innovation SE Hampshire, Portsmouth 11 July 2017

‘Many thanks for inviting me to partake in the Disability Equality & Inclusive Practice training day. Hearing the real life experiences from Madissa and Tom, especially in regards to the education system provided an invaluable insight into the obstacles a person with a disability can encounter in mainstream schools, college, university and daily life. Having engaged in your training my attitude towards people who live with a disability remains unchanged, however my attitude towards societies perception and handling of disability related issues has changed. Although progress has been made there is still a lot more which can be done, and this training is a crucial tool in delivering such a message.’
