Our Services

Disability is a specialized field. In order to get the right results, it requires a specialist approach. The Nathan Ebanks Foundation is a disability and inclusion specialist. For almost ten years, we have contributed significantly to government policies, capacity-building, public awareness and education, advocacy, and building out of accessibility supports in our society.

Our Training and Consulting Division offers research-based learning opportunities including conferences, professional development workshops, in-service presentations and workshops, web-based services, and other capacity development for early childhood, primary/preparatory, secondary and vocational institutions, dedicated to reaching all learners.

We also offer to businesses a unique range of disability services  and tools to help businesses and organisations become disability-smart.
