Waves of inclusion is a new group for people with and without disabilities who would like to come together to socialise and increase a sense of belonging.
What is the Waves of Inclusion?
In this group, people with and without disabilities come together to socialise. We hang out and chat, play games, and talk about friendships and relationships. We treat everyone equally. It is important to us that everyone feels welcome.
Do you want to come along?
If you would like to make new friends and get out more, come along! Meet new people, learn about relationships, how to use social media (for example Facebook), and get more confidence. This group is located in Newcastle.
