Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People (QEF) welcomed HRH The Countess of Wessex on 24th June to officially open the state of the art Care and Rehabilitation Centre (CRC) - a centre of neuro rehabilitation expertise that supports people to rebuild their lives after an acquired brain injury, stroke, incomplete spinal injury or other neurological condition.
Peter Gordon, Chair of Trustees at QEF, has decided to step down from the role at the end of May 2021, having been a Trustee for over 8 years and Chair for nearly 4 years. After an enormously demanding period serving QEF, Peter welcomes the opportunity to rebalance his service in the voluntary sector and personal life but remains absolutely committed to QEF’s clients and the QEF cause.
QEF has joined forces with Ethos Farm, in a joint initiative to develop ASK FIRST - a unique suite of disability equality and confidence online training courses, developed specifically for the aviation industry.
QEF has developed a Disability Equality Training Course specifically aimed at the global aviation industry. This one day course is aimed at aviation staff who are required to understand disability equality to improve the passenger experience, comply with aviation regulations and provide inclusive service at every stage of the journey. Working together, QEF aims to build disability allies in aviation.
