True inclusion means a world where all disabled young people can access the same services and community activities as everyone else. To be inclusive, workers have to change and adapt their processes and services to be more accessible. We want a world where young people with and without disability live, work, play and socialise together regardless of their differences.

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

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