About this event
The Inclusion Network aims to provide youth professionals with the opportunity to share knowledge, expertise and resources on inclusion issues. Inclusion is understood as: reducing physical and social barriers, having a community-led approach, identifying and understanding client group’s needs, and promoting positive attitudes and behaviours towards individuals. The network also focuses on underrepresented groups, as defined in the Nine Protected Characteristics under the Equality Act 2010. You can find notes from previous meetings here.
