WELCOME is a 2 year Grundtvig Lifelong Learning Partnership funded by the European Union. The partnership includes 6 organisations from Germany, the Czech Republic, Romania and the UK.
The objectives of this learning partnership are:
1) to make adult education centers more welcoming for learners with a disability - through awareness raising and professionalization of educational and management staff.
2) to build up networks between education centers and associations for disabled people, thus improving the participation rate and the inclusion of adult learners with a disability into adult education. You can find out more background at the project website HERE.
This page features information, views and opinions focusing on disabled people and adult education in Cumbria and the UK.
Talk is an award-winning 12 minute film which challenges misconceptions about disability in a creative and entertaining way. Although several years old, it is still a thought provoking insight into how disabled people are viewed by able bodied society.
