Support Community Participation and Inclusion

Activity 1

Factors to consider include:

  • The skills and capabilities of the client
  • Motivation and desire to learn
  • Disabilities or problems
  • Organisational and government policies and procedures
  • Activity 2


    Katie has an intellectual disability which means that she may not make the right decisions all the time. She will need a supervisor to make sure she is doing tasks correctly and will also need someone for advice on decision making tasks.


    There are many ways that she can improve her skills. The most common is a training course to give her the important knowledge of policies and procedures and also gives her the formal qualifications that she needs to look reliable. This training should be adjusted to her disability as she may not be able to take a lot of information all at once. Her strengths and weaknesses are quite obvious as she has previous experience with her own garden, but has the intellectual disability that could cause many risks.



    I would firstly list and write down all the support network names and also write the contact details next to them. I would also keep in touch with them by emails and phone calls. Letting them know that their service may be useful. They should also confirm their specific services and roles that they play in the community.

    Activity 3


    By using the list created in activity 2, the information, such as names can be found. Also on the internet, you can find the contact details of all these networks and many more.


    I will firstly have to confirm the information with the staff of the networks. Also reading the information on the website can be very useful.


    There are many ways to communicate the information to Katie. One way is to email her, phone call her, give her an interview with the information on hard copy etc. these are the most effective ways.

    Activity 4


    This is because different cultures perform tasks differently and have special needs and requirements that other culture do not. Therefore, these needs and requirements must be considered when making and implementing a community integration plan.


    Stereotyping is when a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing is used to describe all of the types. Some people are offended by stereotypes that are offensive or misleading. Therefore, it is important to take into consideration the cultural differences, however do not stereotype these cultures.


    The workplace must be very basic and should not be promoting or targeting specific families, cultures or ideologies. The workplace should be neutral in all aspects.
