The Inclusion Facilitator (IF)’s aims will be to improve all aspects of the focus person’s life and their recruitment will reflect this breadth. The focus of the work could be:
Close matching by age, culture, sexuality and gender will support this work. Relevant experiences and personal qualities more than qualifications will guide recruitment of IFs.
This work will not be undertaken by professionals too immersed in ‘medical model’ traditional approaches to meeting special needs.
The work is inclusive and person centred and requires confidence, energy and drive in the overcoming of resistance to change from a range of sources including the young person, their family and carers and professional agencies involved in their life.
