    Story

    GREAT SOUTH RUN

    Toucan Diversity is an award winning social enterprise based in Portsmouth that delivers disability equality training to increase awareness in the workplace and society. We are a disability confident leader and a user-led organisation.

    All money raised will enable us to continue our work towards awareness in the workplace and society – including training and recruiting more trainers with lived experience, and increasing the number of training sessions we offer.

    Our Great South Run Team are all in the process of getting fit for the 10 miles through historic Portsmouth This is a great distance for our runners with stunning sea views. We would like to introduce you to our Team:

    Sarah Muir, Mike Harris, Paul Steinle, Maya Seraphin, Emma Lennox, Tyler Ward, Thomas Radbourne and Mel Tourres.

    Benefits to Toucan Diversity Training. All money raised will enable us to continue our work towards awareness in the workplace and society – including training and recruiting more trainers with lived experience, and increasing the number of training sessions we offer.

    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“
