Introduction to inclusive practice

Inclusive practice means working in a way that is accessible, and helps people feel welcome and supported.

We made this website and resources to help government and other organisations to think about how to be more inclusive of people with an intellectual disability.

Inclusion can mean different things to different people. Everyone is different; there is no single checklist which applies to all people. Inclusion is about making sure people have what they need to participate as equals.

We called our project Towards Inclusive Practice as a prompt to think about inclusion in your work at all times.

In this section you will find information about:

  • what we mean by inclusive practice
  • the importance of inclusive practice in delivering better outcomes for people
  • the ladder of participation: being inclusive across different engagement methods
  • the importance of time in inclusive practice
  • getting support from disability organisations
