Disability Rights Workshop comes to Edinburgh
Are you an SBH Scotland member aged 18-35 and interested in the rights of those with disabilities?
The international Federation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus are working with Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) to offer a FREE 3 day workshop to 10 people interested in the rights of those with disabilities.
This 3-day intensive training session will be held on 13-15 October 2017 in Edinburgh. Arrival for the course is the evening of the 12th of October and the training will commence on the 13th of October.
If you are a young person, aged 18-35, living with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus and would like to learn more about your rights and how to advocate them, then we'd like you to apply. There are limited spaces so you need to apply by Monday 18th September and the 10 successful candidates will be chosen at random.
The aim is to help you understand the human rights of persons with disabilities and learn practical skills that will allow you to use the Convention within your community. These human rights are protected under the United Nations (UN) Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (the Convention).
