Typical comments from our training course attendees:

"I work and live in a world of multicultural difference and diversity. It is most interesting to lean more about a particular group of people who live within our community, and aspire to lead normal lives. It has been an interesting and enlightening morning that has enabled open and honest discussions"

"Presentations – well delivered and researched with broad references"

"I learned so much in such a short time, it was interesting to get to understand not only the difference in the different groups within our society, but also to learn how much effect ignorance has on individuals going though transition"
