Mission, values and beliefs
Inclusion Cayman, formally known as ‘The Special Needs Foundation Cayman’, is an independent, impartial advocacy organization supporting families across the Cayman Islands to promote and defend the rights and interests of people with disabilities. Inclusion Cayman is managed and staffed by allies of persons with disabilities who recognize the issues that people with disabilities and families face and who can assist in strengthening the advocacy and capacity of families.
Inclusion is not a place. Inclusion is belonging everywhere. Inclusion is a commitment to valuing ALL individuals.
Our mission is to support the community in the commitment to cultivating and upholding values and practices that ensure the equal rights of ALL individuals and families, regardless of ability. Inclusion must allow for full access and participation in the communities in which an individual lives and chooses to navigate. Individuals of all abilities deserve to belong and be active members of society, in turn nurturing a diverse village of lifelong friendships and relationships. Supporting all individuals in reaching their full potential is a joint effort of all members of society.
