What Is Inclusion

Inclusion can, at times, mean different things to different people. We believe inclusion is the opportunity for all people to live a rewarding life and participate in a welcoming community. We want everyone to feel welcome, have choice and control, share public spaces and feel a sense of belonging within their community.

“Inclusion is the art of ensuring that all people feel welcomed and celebrated for exactly who they are. This means that all differences are viewed as unique gifts that an individual can offer to a group or a community.”

It is not a theory that is restricted to one group of people, but rather something that is of great importance to all human beings.

Benefits to organisations & clubs

We’ll plan together, create opportunities and develop experiences where everyone feels welcome. Our strengths-based approach will help break down barriers, tap into new voices, build confidence and sustainable actions - it’s about what you want to achieve.

It’s more than support to achieve your goals, it’s about making things happen, now and into the future. It’s the opportunity to engage new members and volunteers, advance skill sets, increase employee engagement, ensure diverse representation, inspire a thriving culture and so much more.

Testimonials

This why we do what we do.

The Toodyay Inclusive Community Program provides alternative choices for juveniles, interaction with other community members and developing relationships with local community clubs and groups. The Toodyay Inclusive Community Program has helped reduce the youth crime rate in our district and has full support from local police.”

“Quinns Rock JCC wants to be an inclusive club, so providing opportunities for children with disabilities is a part of that goal. It’s really added another positive dimension to our club and it’s helped our club support and interact with children and families who weren’t previously a part of a local sporting club. Being able to pass on our knowledge and love for the game to people who haven’t had the opportunity to experience cricket before is proving to be life changing for them and their families. Our whole club has embraced it and we love that more people are finding a sense of belonging at our club.”
