The New Paths to InclUsion Network project has enabled participants from different countries, organisations and social systems, to share experiences. New Paths to InclUsion Network has underlined the interdependence of the three keys to inclusion: implementing person-centred support and organisational learning; community inclusion and development; inclusive trainings and learning.
By enhancing the individual learning of participants on inclusion, methods of person-centred planning and person-centred thinking have been successfully implemented. Self-advocates’ views were heard, which was essential for organisational change. Indeed, the learning experience in an inclusive group was of the utmost importance for change of attitude towards inclusion. Learning together despite the different views on problems or achievements has provided a good example of how society could develop towards inclusion.
Theory U and Sensing Journeys were also used as great tools to facilitate community inclusion and development. It only strengthened participants’ beliefs in inclusion by showing them that, in all participants countries, people face exclusion and need strong (self-) advocates.
Project partners were introduced to inspiring ideas, innovative regional and local projects and great opportunities. They have already started to spread these innovations within their own organisations and countries, as part of the path to inclusion.
