The Inclusion Project is a multi-award-winning innovative initiative that promotes a healthy, social and active lifestyle for adults with Learning Disabilities. The emphasis is for Participants to be included into the local community.
Post education life can be an abyss for people with Learning Disabilities, it can be difficult to find activities during week days that will facilitate the lifestyle that young adults desire. The Inclusion Project is set to solve this issue.
The Inclusion Project is funded through direct payments that people with Learning Disabilities can be allocated by their social workers. We charge in line with what the standard direct payment hourly rate is in the local area. Our costs can also be privately funded.
Participants will be collected and dropped home (or whichever location is requested) by a Group Leader at a pre agreed time.
Participants can be supported at a 3:1 ratio; 3 participants to one Group Leader, 4:1 or a 1:1 ratio.

The Inclusion Project is for anyone over the age of 16 years old, for both male and female.
We run 7 days a week covering different activities on different days and evenings. Participants can select which days they attend, and can take part in 1 or all 7 days.
We are incredibly proud of our excellent team of Group Leaders, all of which complete the Care Certificate within their first 8 weeks of starting with The Inclusion Project and are experienced within care and support from a variety of backgrounds - please click here to see our Group Leaders.

We are proud to be part of local projects to help our respective local communities, these projects also offer valuable life skills for our Participants and experience that can hopefully aid them in achieving what they would like to do next in life. Examples of these projects include - Colney Heath Recycling Project, Football Club Retail Skills, Grow Cheshunt Gardening Project, Charity Shops, Welwyn Garden City Boxing Club and plenty more. We are always looking for more ways to help our local community, so if you have any ideas, then please let us know.
We pride ourselves on being a service that doesn't simply 'maintain' our Participants, but one which appropriately challenges them to progress. We work with our Participants on 3 social targets, these can be amended and updated as often as required, these social targets can be formed by the Participant, their family/guardians and the support network around them. These social targets are then worked on by the Participant and our team of Group Leaders to enable social progression.
We are also very proud to be an official Mencap Gateway Award Provider, which is an award which provides our Participants the opportunity to learn employability skills, which can be worked on with us at The Inclusion Project and then added to their CV.
