Social Model of Disability - free training

Breakthrough UK and 'Lets Have a Good Week' project invite you to attend a free session on the Social Model of Disability.

Would you like to increase your understanding and awareness of the Social Model of Disability?

This is the idea that it is society which disables people, not a person's impairments, and it is society that should change.

The Social Model also describes the future that we, at Breakthrough UK, work towards: a society free from disabling barriers, where disabled people can participate fully in the opportunities and activities that you provide.
