I specialise in accessibility consultancy for the design and facilitation of icebreaker games and activities.

A consultation would typically include:

  • a preliminary discussion with you via email
  • the reading / viewing / playing of material (i.e. planned icebreaker games or activities, or details of group characteristics and intended outcomes of icebreaker) supplied by you
  • a video call with you or in-person meeting with you (if local)
  • a written report of recommendations

You will receive advice about the inclusion and accessibility of non-normative and marginalised groups with regard to icebreaker games and activities.

This will be different depending on what I am consulting on for you, but may look like:

  • examples of appropriate / inappropriate language to use
  • responses to specific accessibility queries or concerns
  • guidance around how to portray a particular experience or discuss a particular subject matter
  • recommendations regarding the setup of an inclusive physical or digital space
  • things to consider about accessibility in your icebreaker design and facilitation process

Please get in touch for rates and further information.
