3. The Include Project
Include.org is an exciting young charity, based in Redhill, which provides creative community activities and training that teach inclusive communication skills, based on speech & language therapy evidence.
1 in 5 people in the UK have communication difficulties; they face isolation, inequalities and exclusion unless the people around them know how to communicate inclusively. Surrey has high numbers of people with understanding and speaking difficulties due to learning disabilities, autism and dementia. Their expertise helps Include.org design training and activities which empower people with communication needs, promote inclusion, raise awareness of rights and teach inclusive communication skills in a fun, interactive – and often musical - way.
Include.org provides services to communities, businesses, education and the health & social care sectors. Everybody benefits from a more inclusive community: as the Include Choir sings ‘Everybody’s welcome – come and join in!’
