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 can take part in their work and are included in decision making.
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 everyone can take part and share their ideas alongside everyone else.
The Listen Include Respect guidelines are a practical tool to help organisations become more inclusive and make sure the way they work respects the rights of people with intellectual disabilities.
