This guide points to opportunities to develop more inclusive communities and provides examples of how it can be done. It outlines a number of approaches from seeking feedback through to full decision-making and leadership by disabled people and emphasises that to achieve fully inclusive outcomes - disabled people taking part in society - requires fully inclusive processes - disabled people participating at all stages in planning and decision-making. Key sections cover: citizenship and participation, involvement of disabled people and role of disabled people organisations, wider participation and decision making, tackling barriers to participation, and disabled people at the hearth of governance. Includes appendices on funding opportunities and reflective questions for DPOs. (Edited publisher abstract)
