This workshop will allow people to:
- Train your own trainers to have experts in accessibility in your church

The workshop is being offered by Our Doors Are Open
. This is a project which offers diverse faith communities in Ontario simple and creative ideas to help increase inclusion and accessibility for people with disabilities in worship services, events and all communal activities, and offers free training seminars and services to all Ontario faith communities.
All are welcome to attend. People are particularly encouraged to attend with more than one person from the same congregation. The agenda will include time to talk together about how to begin to implement some of the strategies that we will be considering.
