Their next workshop takes place at Burnley FC on Wednesday 3 February 2016 and you can read about the programme here.

You will see ability in its truest sense, you will gain insight into proven communication models that really work and have an opportunity to network with likeminded individuals and organisations.

Learning Disability Accessible Communication workshops will provide useful tools to enable you to better engage with people with this hidden disability either as athletes, associates, customers, colleagues or employees.

You will receive invaluable communication tips and techniques from British athletes themselves. You will receive tailored advice from our expert tutors. You will leave with a toolkit with tips on accessible communication techniques for you and your organisation.
