Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

The Specialist Advisers are a national team who support District, County and Regional Scouting to ensure it is inclusive, accessible and as diverse as the communities in which we live. 

We are a resource, a sounding board, a listener and supporter for anyone seeking guiding around diversity and inclusion in Scouting. Specialist Advisers offer a safe, trusted space for adults in Scouting to be able to discuss challenging and sensitive issues that may not feel comfortable to discuss elsewhere.

As a team we have a range of professional and Scouting expertise; and each possess a genuine passion and enthusiasm for supporting Scouting For All. Practically in each of our regions we can offer training; support and guidance, and strategic input. 

Areas the team can support include:
•    Additional Needs (disabilities, learning difficulties, challenging behaviour) 
•    Community engagement 
•    Gender equality
•    LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender)
•    Socio-economic inclusion
