This edition of the inclusion of age & disability in humanitarian action training course was jointly developed by the Age and Disability consortium, a group of seven agencies working to promote age and disability inclusive humanitarian assistance: CBM,, Handicap International, HelpAge International, IFRC, Oxford Brookes University and RedR UK.

The development of the training was made possible thanks to the support and advice of many individuals and organisations. The training was coordinated by RedR UK. The review team comprised Age and Disability Consortium members: Kirsty Smith, Valerie Scherrer and Tushar Wali (CBM), Ricardo Pla Cordero (Handicap International), Diana Hiscock, Irene van Horssen and Ivan Kent (HelpAge International), Supriya Akerkar (Oxford Brookes University) and Kate Denman and Poppy Hardee (RedR). Lara Quarterman (DFID) provided additional feedback on the pilot training. The ADCAP programme is led by HelpAge International as part of a portfolio of capacity strengthening projects under the Start Network. It is funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The development of the ADCAP training materials was made possible by the generous support of the American People through USAID. The contents are the responsibility of the Age and Disability Consortium and do not necessarily reflect the views of USAID or the United States Government.
