Aims and Objectives

Launched in February 2015, Disability Matters is an innovative suite of free resources to support those who work, volunteer or engage with disabled children and young people (from 0 to 25 years) and their families.  It seeks to address the barriers that make society disabling.  These challenges are faced by those with either physical and/or intellectual disabilities.

Developed by disabled young people, parent carers and other experts, Disability Matters arranges individual modules into helpful bite-sized learning packages so that the training offered matches the needs of specific individuals, groups, organisations and sectors.  It offers practical advice about supporting disabled children, young people and their families to achieve the outcomes that matter to them.

Disability Matters is a free e-learning resource for the UK workforce.

It consists of three programmes:

  • Disability Matters: all Disability Matters e-learning sessions
  • Disability Matters Learning Packages: e-learning sessions that have been grouped together to meet particular learning needs.
  • Disability Matters Resources: Face-to-face training resource packs
