The Inclusion Project is a community based initiative that aims to provide young adults with learning difficulties with the social opportunities and independence they desire. Throughout our wide range of activities, the project aims to promote healthy living, independence, fun and social inclusion. The Inclusion Project caters for young adults aged 16 years and over with learning difficulties, autism, or other specialist needs.
The project was first established in St Albans and has expanded across Hertfordshire and into Essex, London, Swindon, Luton, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire with tremendous success, supporting numerous individuals each and every day. The Cambridge City and Huntingdonshire branch welcomes individuals from throughout Cambridge, Huntingdon, St Ives, Biggleswade and Sandy, in addition to surrounding towns and villages.
The Cambridge City and Huntingdonshire branch has an exciting 2 week rotating timetable providing a variety of fun activities, with the added opportunity for personalisation to suit the preferences of those participating in the project. We currently run sessions during weekdays and offer support on a 3:1 basis, with some limited opportunities for 1:1 provision also. Our sessions last for 7 hours and include a door-to-door transportation service from the individuals home. Individuals can choose to participate in one or all 5 days depending on their individual requirements and the service is offered both during and outside of term-time, making it an inclusive project for all young individuals.
Currently evening and weekend sessions are not available, but in time the scope of our service will increase and change with demand, therefore these hope to be introduced along with updates and exciting additions to the already flexible timetable we have on offer. Please see our Facebook page or the location specific area of our website for our timetable and further information. We look forward to hearing from you and answering any queries you may have.
