We want to create a world where all young people can access the same services and community activities as everyone else. We want a world where young people with and without disability live, work, play and socialize together regardless of their differences.

We want to support youth workers to implement inclusive practice and to break down the barriers that prevent young disabled people from accessing their service. We want to ensure that workers know how to communicate with, include and support young disabled people.

Young disabled people have told us how important it is to have a sense of community that comes from being with your peers. Opportunities for young disabled people to come together with their peers are important and young disabled people need safe places and spaces to do so.
