Arts Council Staff know the benefits of being Disability Positive
Congratulations to Matthew Hendry, Claire Kilpatrick, Ashleigh Lilley, Nick Livington, Suzanne Lyle, Maria McAlister, Lorraine McDowell, Siobhan McDowell, Ciaran Scullion, Damian Smyth, Graeme Stevenson, Geoffrey Troughton, Deborah Young and K Bartleyon on achieving Disability Positive Accreditation following the recent Disability Positive Seminar.
While this seminar raises good disability practice awareness, the main focus is on practice underpinned by a good disability positive attitude. Being positive, welcoming, willing to assist and using your disability good practice knowledge together with direction from your disabled colleague or customer results in appropriate and better solutions for all. All these individuals have shown a great attitude towards disability and the Arts Council should be proud of them!
