Enabling All - Learning Together

You don’t have to be an expert to get started. As well as our regular network meetings, where we learn what’s worked from others in their church, we offer bitesize training (link to videos) on particular topics - a number as short videos. Sign up to our newsletter for what’s coming next.

We passionately believe that disabled and neurodivergent people in our congregations are the experts on the barriers they experience and what would make a difference. Our network meetings empower one another to share this experience more widely. Do you have experience to share? If you've already signed up to our newsletter, we would love it if you could do this five minute survey.

Below we have gatherd a number of pages of helpful materials. some gatherd from what we’ve learnt so far through connecting with others, much gatherd on our TopTips page.

We all have gifts to share. What would you like others to know to support their learning? Please get in touch with us to discuss ways we can enable, equip and empower one another across the diocese.

Alongside our Enabling All work, Revd Susan Myatt leads our diocesan Deaf Church.
