Disability Inclusion Awareness Raising and Sensitization Training


This manual is for Red Cross Red Crescent staff or volunteers who are organizing a training or workshop on disability inclusion for their organization’s or partner organization’s staff and/or volunteers. The training described in this manual has been piloted in two field locations, and the manual is based on the pilot training and feedback from both organizers and participants.

The manual is a step-by-step guide on what to do to set up a training aimed at increasing awareness and sensitivity to inclusion of persons with disabilities. The manual provides tips for how to make a training on disability inclusion context-specific and interactive. However, this is a model that organizers can and should adapt to meet the needs of the trainees. Organizers should use other resources for interactive activities, facilitation of group work etc. that can be used in their training.
