What are the Listen Include Respect guidelines?
The Listen Include Respect guidelines help organisations understand what they need to do to make sure people with intellectual disabilities are included in their work.
People with intellectual disabilities may work with an organisation in different ways. For example, as employees, service users, volunteers, board or committee members, or as people involved in projects.
Inclusion is not just about having people with intellectual disabilities in the room. It is about making sure that they can meaningfully take part and contribute equally alongside everyone else.
The Listen Include Respect guidelines are a practical tool to help organisations that believe in inclusion become more inclusive and make sure their work is in line with the rights of people with intellectual disabilities.
