Inclusive Futures

IF Play Unified    

Inclusive Futures, has sat under the umbrella of GamesForce for two years and officially ended in September 2016. The leadership and volunteering initiative generated positive behaviours and attitudes among young disabled/non-disabled people on issues related to ability, access and equality in sport. 

While as a title, Inclusive Futures is no longer in use, its values will continue as a part of GamesForce. Disabled and non-disabled young volunteers are still invited to volunteer with GamesForce at our London Youth Games competitions and other external events.


 

Inclusive Futures was based in nine host cities across the UK. Disabled/non-disabled volunteers in each city were guided by a Volunteer Coordinator, based within a local sporting host organisation. In London, the London Youth Games hosted Inclusive Futures as part of the GamesForce program. As well as having the opportunity to attend the National Inclusive Futures Camp, each city heldolds regional training camps, events/activities throughout the year.

Volunteer Coordinators helped volunteers find volunteering opportunities at local schools, community sports clubs and major sporting events. In doing so, Inclusive Futures influenced and increased the capacity of local providers in delivering fully inclusive physical activities/sport opportunities for the benefit of the entire community.
