Pam Saunders

We are chuffed to bits that Pam is taking on the Spinnaker Tower Abseil for Toucan Diversity. She is an awesome part of Living Your Learning and we thank her for taking a leap for Toucan Diversity!

Every penny raised will go toward the work we do!

Toucan Diversity is an award winning user-led social enterprise based in Portsmouth. We deliver equality training with a focus on disability. We are unique as all our trainers have a lived experience of a disability.

Disability Equality training in the UK, first started over 30 years ago as a way of tackling and challenging stereotypical attitudes of disability. Furthermore, training sessions have since been led by people with first-hand experience of disability.

Find out more about Toucan Diversity

Disability Equality training gives participants from various establishments, the chance to see disability as a human rights issue, which is based on the ideas of the ‘Social Model.’ This means that the training explores the various barriers that people with disabilities face and encourages participants to think about what can be done to remove these barriers. This is carried out through various methods, for example, group work, activities and discussions.

All our trainers are supported depending on their various needs. All are accredited or are working towards becoming accredited.

The feedback from our training sessions confirms that our training is unique in the way it is delivered and that people get a real understanding of the challenging barriers people face on a daily basis.

“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
