Disability Inclusion Conference

We’re hosting a series of online inclusion conferences to consider how we can make Scouting more inclusive for all the communities that we serve.


Join us online for a festival of ideas to strengthen disability inclusion within Scouting. Eight online Zoom sessions will be held between Tuesday 28th July and Saturday 8th August. Topics will include:

  • Understanding anxiety
  • Reasonable adjustments for Achievement Pathways
  • Practical strategies for inclusive Scouting
  • Sensory awareness
  • National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and Scouting
  • Showcase of successful disability inclusion
  • Q&A discussion on ‘burning issues’

Sessions are open nationwide and designed for youth leaders from all sections.
