Social Inclusion


We employ a full-time job coach who supports people to develop and progress on an employment pathway into paid work. We use the supported employment model and work directly with employers on reasonable adjustments in recruitment and retention. Our job coach won the BASE Practitioner of the Year Award 2016. Since 2010, 45 people have been supported into paid work in open employment and 90 people have had paid work as part of Three Cs Employment Pool.


We run a volunteer programme which is open to both members of the public and people we support. As well as enriching people’s lives through befriending, general volunteers are matched to people’s interests so that they can enjoy leisure, health, sport and cultural activities with someone who shares their passion. People we support can contribute their skills and efforts through volunteering, either for its own sake or as part of an employment pathway. Since the volunteer programme began in 2013, 190 volunteers have added enormous value to the Three Cs team effort.

Social contact and inclusion activities

As well as running a range of events and regular group and social activities, the Social Inclusion team works in partnership with other organisations, like the Horniman Museum and the National Maritime Museum, to promote the use of community resources, inclusion in public spaces, and make visible the positive contribution of the disabled people we support.

Self-advocacy and campaigns

The Social Inclusion Task Force, All4inclusion and SeeMyAbility are all self-advocacy groups or campaigns developed with the support of our social inclusion team. Our focus is on developing and supporting people to self-organise, speak out, assert their rights and get their views heard both at Three Cs and in the public domain. The social inclusion team also supports people to participate in local and national democracy, including voting in local and general elections.
