Cardiff and Vale Citizen Advice Bureau – 6th April 2017

“The trainers own experiences made situations and challenges easier to understand.”

“I think the delivery was extremely well balanced giving both sides as to what was realistically achievable i.e.  Changes are effected by budgets and what one person finds appropriate another may not.  The main point to remember is communication.”

“Excellent delivery on a subject that I now know much more about.”

“Superb.  Richard is a quality speaker with a great sense of humour.”

“A very pleasant course to attend.  Richard and Gemma work very well together.  It was informative and easy to understand.”

“I enjoyed the way the training was delivered.  The trainer held an excellent style and I felt more worthwhile coming from someone with a disability.”

“The course really enhanced my knowledge and understanding and Richard delivered it extremely well. Well worth doing.”

Some Additional Feedback:

“The practical task i.e. getting individuals to be blindfolded or use a wheelchair was an excellent method in gaining more awareness of what actually having a disability entails.”

“All round a very information course.”

Michelle Roberts – The Gellideg Foundation Group

One delegate said the following when asked if their awareness of disability legislation had improved:

 “Yes, I now know much more and how to approach people with visual and non-visual disabilities.”

Some of the responses we’ve received when asked if the trainers disability affect the training experience:

“Although I initially found it a little disconcerting, but by the end I was very comfortable – and this was due to the positive attitude of the trainer in dealing with my “uncomfortableness””

“Richard was very relaxed with a great sense of humour who makes the most of life.”
