About The Inclusion Project

Company Overview

The Inclusion Project provides Social Day-Opportunities/Social-Care for adults with Learning-Disabilities; located in community-venues for social-inclusion. Focus is on developing Participants' independence/confidence, social-skills e.g. money-management, life-style choices, voluntary work-experience, independent-living, travel, and social-interaction skills. We are a door-to-door service, with Group-Leaders, collecting/returning Participants home, after a 7-hour day, or 4-hour evening. Group-Leader to Participant ratio is 1:3 or 1:1. We operate year-round, 6-days a week. Franchisees have timetables of activities, varied to match Participants' needs. Our service is covered by Direct-Payments.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

Franchisees markets their timetable and TIP to recruit Participants e.g. at LAs, NHS, open-evenings, local-colleges etc. They work as a Group-Leader accessing Participants Information Forms, collect Participants in their own cars, assist at community-venues, during a 7-hour session, broken up e.g. gym in the morning, bowling in the afternoon. They act as an Adult-Social-Care-Worker, until they have enough Participants to enable them to have other Group-Leaders working within their Franchise. The Franchisee may then take on a more managerial role.
