TRAINING SERVICES

With real life experience as people with disabilities, and over 25 years of work experience, The Herrington Group provides exceptional services to equip you and your team to be compliant, and cognizant of the issues people with disabilities face every day.

COMPREHENSION
AND RESULTS

Our approach to disability awareness is informed by the unique experience of being both a compliance expert and a person living with a disability.

The lived experience as a person with disabilities has shaped The Herrington Group’s core values of respect and inclusion. Our awareness training, not only includes training in required legislative compliance areas, but emphasizes the need to celebrate diversity – in all its forms – and teaches how to build truly inclusive communities for your customers and employees alike.

We are committed to achieving more than mere understanding; therefore we combine our coaching and training skill sets to ensure that these core values and ideas have an opportunity to really take root within your workplace.

The Herrington Group designs and delivers direct participant training workshops, as well as, train-the-trainer workshops and toolkits that are practical and concise.

All disability awareness training sessions created by The Herrington Group Ltd are “cross disability based” meaning they explore the needs and experiences of individuals with a variety of different disabilities including mobility, sensory, learning, mental health and environmental.
