Covid-19 Coronavirus

During this lockdown period all face to face training has been postponed.  We will meet your training needs by developing remote training using Zoom.  Our online Introduction to Mental Health Awareness training is now open for bookings.

From July to mid December we offer a number of online Adult Mental Health First Aid (accredited by MHFA England) using Zoom and enabley. We also deliver the Adult MHFA refresher course - contact us to book.  Following this, we will develop our other courses for remote training.    As always, we can develop bespoke remote training to meet your needs.  Please contact us for details.

What we do

We want a world where disabled and D/deaf people and people with mental health needs, are fully included and happily participate in all aspects of society.  Sunsurfer Consultancy develops inclusion and participation, by staff training in Equality and Diversity throughout the UK. We are based in Edinburgh and Manchester and work throughout the UK.  We can help you to create full inclusion to your services for disabled people; by training staff in their responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010, the social model of disability and respecting cultural diversity.

We have been training with private and public sector clients since 2004.  Independently and in partnership with HearFirst we have trained hundreds of organisations and thousands of delegates across the UK with consistently excellent feedback.  Mickey Fellowes is also an Associate trainer for Mates in Mind and the British Safety Council.  Here is what a few of our delegates said...
