Involvement and Participation


This workshop will help you to understand the basics about Involvement and Participation, including:

  • What is involvement and participation and why does it matter?
  • What are the different ways you can involve disabled people and people with mental health challenges in your work?
  • What are funders looking for in terms of involvement and participation?
