The initiative, in partnership with Creative Skillset, is designed to encourage greater diversity in the television industry and follows on from the hugely successful workshop organised last month for aspiring black, Asian and ethnic minority (BAME) actors.
Targeting both male and female actors with disabilities, the organisers only ask that applicants have an active interest in and passion for acting and are over the age of 18.
The workshop will take place on 19 November at Media City, Salford in the United Kingdom and will include acting classes from current Coronation Street star Cherylee Houston as well as advice from casting directors from the show. Participants will also get the opportunity to receive feedback following live auditions.
