We can define inclusive volunteering as those volunteering opportunities that are accessible to all people regardless of age, culture, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, social status or disability.
“Volunteering is for everyone and anyone can be a volunteer”
If we use the term “inclusion” in an educational sense and apply it to volunteering, then “inclusion” means the total participation of a person with a disability or any other difficulty limiting their opportunities.
In spite of the possible barriers, working with traditionally excluded volunteers can be very enriching, and bring many benefits, both for volunteers, organisations and society as a whole.
