Keys to Inclusion – Promoting Equality, Diversity and Inclusion for disabled children and their families

Keys to Inclusion is working with children with disabilities and their families to break down the barriers that exist so that everyone can play their full part in their communities in Scotland.

We work in collaboration with others to promote more choice and control and take practical action to help make sense of new developments – such as personalisation, self directed support, individual service funds, etc.

We support families with information about the changes being made in their area and to work together in their communities.

We assist organisations to develop strategies and plans for meeting the support families want and help to plan and prepare for new ways of working.

We collaborate and work jointly on new ideas and innovations.


We support students and provide training on disability equality, personalisation and all aspects of self directed support.

Get in touch if you have a question or want to talk about your situation.

We welcome inquiries from individuals, families, supporters, collaborators, potential volunteers and organisations.

We are happy to talk with you and to design training, work on plans and offer support to meet your individual needs and circumstances.

If you share our vision of greater fairness and rights for children and families we would love to hear from you.


If you would like to know more about what we do and /or how we can help please get in touch. Email us – for a quick and friendly response.

What people said

On our training:

“This course has changed my outlook – not just in work but also in my personal life and the way I will think about children I see doing things outwith, like in the supermarket. We will observe now. We will ask questions and reflect on our policies and how we look at children’s behaviour”

After School Club Manager

On the Director:

Shirley – the first and possibly only manager I ever saw who put her money where her mouth was and really treated staff with respect.

It was really liberating for me, to see what I had always thought could work in terms of management style, in action. On top of that… fantastic with the young people.
