Become a Member

Inclusion Barnet is led by and for disabled people, including people with mental health issues and long-term conditions. This is why membership of our charity is only open to people with their own lived experience of disability and those that care for them. 

Joining a growing network of disabled people in Barnet

Together our voices are stronger!
We hold regular forums to discuss disability rights issues in Barnet and beyond. You’ll get to meet other local disabled residents and make local connections. We usually have guest speakers at our events including local councillors, influential campaigners and speakers. These are great opportunities to learn, share and develop views on local disability rights issues. 
 

Connecting with the people in power

Your input at our forums directly feeds into our narrative at over 30 boards and forums in the borough, capital and nationally that our CEO and senior organisation representatives sit on. The views and experiences you share with us enables us to speak with confidence in these arenas which are important gateways to getting our voices heard by the people in power. Inclusion Barnet opinions and views on disability matters in the Barnet community and beyond are increasingly sought by influencers and decision makers.
