Engage in Inclusion!

A guide on disability-inclusive European youth projects (Strategic Partnership on Inclusion, 2021)

Do you have little or no experience in planning disability-inclusive youth projects but are willing to give it a try, then this guide is for you!

  • It helps you develop more inclusive and diversity-sensitive youth work.
  • It shows how you can also work with young people with disabilities and health conditions.
  • It is a great reflection starter about how inclusive your own youth projects are.

What can you find in Engage in Inclusion!

  • Practical advice on planning, implementing and the follow-up of inclusive short-term projects of Erasmus+ Youth and the European Solidarity Corps
  • Specific Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps features such as the financial support for inclusion.
  • An additional checklist to keep an eye on the important aspects of planning and implementing your future projects (more) inclusively. Yes, you can!

Where does this guide come from?

Engage in Inclusion was developed by the Health & Diverse abilities strand of the Strategic Partnership for Inclusion (SPI) - a multi-annual strategic co-operation between 18 National Agencies for Erasmus+ Youth and the European Solidarity Corps and the SALTO Inclusion & Diversity Resource Centre. 

With this guide, we want to contribute to “mainstreaming” disability-inclusion in the EU youth programmes. It aims to support those organisations that do not have much experience with young persons with disabilities in their activities but are interested in working more inclusively.

Make it (even) better!

We hope that Engage in Inclusion! helps you to organise disability-inclusive activities step-by-step. We would love to get your feedback on this guide: 

  • Did the guide help you to become more inclusive? 
  • What worked well for you? What is missing?
  • Any additions from your own practice or perspective?
