About Inclusion Gloucestershire

Inclusion Gloucestershire is a disabled people’s organisation that exists to facilitate inclusion for people who face disabling barriers, every day and in every way. We recognise, that no two people will be affected by disabling barriers in the same way.

Our Vision is to help people achieve an inclusive society that values, respects and includes disabled people everyday and in every way.

Our Model:
We are user-led and our model places ‘experts by experience’ at the centre of what we do.
They are people who have experience of living with a disability or mental ill health and who know what works for them and what doesn’t.
Every project we work on involves our experts by experience, who are fully supported in what they do.
Being user-led means that the majority of our Board, which makes the important decisions about how we are run, have lived experience of disability. The majority of our staff team are also disabled, so have valuable insight into life with a disability.
