Half-day masterclass

UNCRPD: What UN earth?

OVERVIEWOUR TRAINERREGISTER TO ATTENDVENUETESTIMONIALS
OUTLINE
UNCRPD. You’ve heard of these letters but what do they really mean? We are required to respect the values enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities but what are they, and what do they mean for you in practice?

Developed in partnership with Sandra McDonald, the former Public Guardian in Scotland, this course is suitable for anyone working with a person with a disability but is particularly aimed at those working with adults with incapacity. The course explores the UNCRPD ‘science bit’ in easy to follow language then uses real case examples for you to study the practical application.
