Inclusion Gloucestershire believes everyone has gifts, ambitions, aspirations and strengths. But sometimes they experience barriers, setbacks and challenges which make it harder for them to reach their potential. We want to change that, through working with disabled people and building on their strengths. Our focus is championing people of all ages, whatever their disability, including people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, sensory impairment and mental ill health. We are a registered charity and user-led organisation, run by people with disabilities for people with disabilities.
National Star College
At National Star, we're driven by our vision for a world in which people with disabilities are able to realise their potential as equal and active citizens in control of their lives. This sits at the heart of everything we do, from the personalised and world-class learning we provide via National Star College to training, specialist services and our work in the wider community. All of this is underpinned by both our passion to enrich people's lives and by our moral and statutory responsibilities. There is a contact form on the website.
