Special Olympics

“Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”

We believe sport should be for everyone. Inclusion Gloucestershire and the Special Olympics provide sports coaching and competition opportunities for people with learning disabilities. Get fit, make friends, work as a team and have fun!

GEM & Employment

GEM (Going the Extra Mile) moves people closer to education, training, volunteering and work.

We treat everyone as individuals and tackle barriers along the way, to make sure we get it right for them.

Learning Disability Board

We co-chair the multi-disciplinary Learning Disability Partnership Board.

This makes sure the voices of people with learning disabilities in Gloucestershire are heard loud and clear.

Children & Young People

At Inclusion Gloucestershire, we empower young people through drama and workshops, help them find their voices and tell their stories.

We work hard to raise their aspirations by showing them what is possible.

Dramatic Change

Drama can change the way we all think about things and make us feel better about ourselves. That’s why we run a weekly drama group.

Disabled and non-disabled people are welcome to come along.

Our drama group makes films about important topics like internet safety, hate crime, sexual abuse and health. We also use drama to train professionals to think differently about disabled people and what they have to offer, and to boost confidence.

Quality Checking

We provide quality checking for health and social care services.

Our quality checkers are people who are living with a disability and have accessed services themselves. They really know what is important and what works and doesn’t work in health and social care settings.

Access to Health

People with learning disabilities often have worse health than other people.

In fact, people with learning disabilities die about 15 years earlier on average than other people.

That’s why we work with NHS England to raise the profile of health care for people with disabilities.
