Leading Inclusion Workshop

Improving your organisation for disabled people  

Sport and activity play an important role in our nation's health and wellbeing, yet disabled people are almost twice as likely as non-disabled people to be physically inactive. To achieve fairness for disabled people in sport and activity, we need organisations to prioritise disabled people's inclusion at all levels. 

Activity Alliance’s Leading Inclusion Workshop has been created to support your organisation in becoming truly excellent for disabled people. It helps organisations provide better services, experiences and activities for everyone. 

What is the workshop format?  

The workshop is a two-day programme that takes organisations on an improvement journey focussed on disability inclusion and equality. It supports organisations to learn and embrace the ways they can be more inclusive and accessible for disabled people.  

During the workshop, our expert Activity Alliance team will engage and assist your organisation to self-review its current practices and identify opportunities for improvement. Designed to be solution-focused and provide ongoing support, we will then assist you to create an effective improvement plan that will have a significant impact across your organisation in the short and long term. 

The workshop programme is divided into five pillars for self-assessment and improvement planning. These are: 

  • Leadership 
  • Culture 
  • Communication 
  • Disabled people’s experience 
  • People

The Leading Inclusion Workshop has been designed to complement and support organisations going through the Moving to Inclusion Framework as well as those that are not. Organisations can choose specific pillars to focus on in depth if they wish. Alternatively, they can complete the Leading Inclusion Workshop as a standalone training option for your organisation.  

Your organisation will also have access to an online workshop dashboard with real-time progress updates and access to useful resources. This allows and empowers your whole organisation to input into the training and improvement plan.
