Inclusive volunteering – Involving volunteers with additional needs

Following a successful event in April on inclusive volunteering, we are delighted to invite you to explore the successes and challenges of including those with disabilities, in volunteering roles, in your organisations. We have three very different guest speakers who will give an insight into the steps they have taken both to find volunteering opportunities as well as to enable those with disabilities to access their organisation.
