Inclusive Community Development Network

Provides a forum for practitioners committed to working for the inclusion of people living with an impairment that is:

  • informed by a passion and commitment for effective, sustainable and inclusive community development practice
  • committed to supporting and engaging the expertise of any person
  • committed to creating a more inclusive society in a spirit of respectful dialogue and tolerance for diversity of views and approaches committed to bringing together
          • The lived experience of disability
          • The expertise of community sector workers
          • The contribution of both the political and administrative arms of government and
          • Socially responsible business leaders and organisations
  • to bring about systemic reforms and change within place-based partnerships that promote effective and sustainable progress around community inclusion and full participation by people with disabilities in all areas of community life
  • that works from a position that practice is not perfect – there is always a variety of approaches that need to be employed and practice can always be improved and developed
  • that links research evidence to practice – with a commitment to emancipatory and participatory forms of action research that value the narrative of peoples experience and facilitates collaborative forums for analysis and planning strategic social action
  • that involves personal time commitment to participation and contribution – not just your bosses time.
