The Fuel team had a really interesting and informative training day at Shape Arts in earlier this month as part of our Access project, supported by the City Bridge Trust. We went on a Deaf and Disability Equality course where we learnt some invaluable things about making our shows and website more accessible, attracting deaf and disabled audiences, improving our sign interpreted performances, dispelling prejudgments about disabled people, and we even had the chance to learn some sign language. We particularly enjoyed the sign for 'pantomime' - a slap on the thigh(!).

We found it a fun and enlightening experience and we'd love to encourage anyone who is interested in making the arts increasingly accessible to learn more at Shape Arts. Get in touch with Tony at Shape Arts,, and let him know we recommended his rewarding training day.

    / Contrary to popular bleeif, Vitamin D includes a greater role in maintaining your bone health than calcium. Although inadequate calcium intake and calcium depletion is considered the largest contributor to the weakening of bones and increasing chances of fractures, it really is Vitamin D which determines your bone health. Vitamin D regulates the amount of calcium which remains in blood circulation and the amount that is deposited inside your teeth and bones. It promotes the absorption of phosphorous and calcium within your body, strengthening your bones.[]
