With only a few remaining training dates available for 2010, we are working on our training schedule for 2011. Design Matters training can be accessed either via the Disabled Living Foundation in London, which runs our courses every year, or we can bring a trainer and assistant to a venue of your choice across England and Wales.
Our one-day training course entitled ‘The Basic Principles of Accessible Kitchen Design’ is aimed primarily at Occupational Therapists, as it assumes a certain level of understanding of various impairments requiring kitchen adaptation. However Case Managers, Architects and Personal Injury Solicitors might also be interested in becoming better acquainted with the issues surrounding kitchen design for their clients who are pursuing compensation claims to improve their independence and quality of life.
Adam Thomas is an acknowledged expert in the field of inclusive kitchen design and has many hundreds of successful designs to his credit for olderpeople, wheelchair users and people with a variety of conditions such as muscular dystrophy, muscular sclerosis, post-polio syndrome, acquired brain injury, arthritis, dementia and restricted growth. His ethos is simple: Kitchens can be fully accessible and attractive, and can be designed to last a lifetime. Find out more about the growing field of inclusive design, the fundamentals of accessible kitchen design, and the latest products and design techniques on our intensive one-day course.
We supply a lead trainer and assistant, and all training materials. You supply a maximum of 20 delegates, refreshments and a training venue. An extensive case study is included to bring the theory to life. New for 2011: Case study can be varied according to your training requirements.
Fees vary depending on the distance of the training venue from our headquarters in South Bucks. Contact Natalie Foskett our training coordinator for more information.
