Inclusion

We want create a world where all young people are able to 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 people with disability from accessing their service. We want to ensure that workers know how to communicate with, include and support young people with disability.

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