Plans for Leeds to mark National Inclusion Week (NIW), which runs from Monday 28 September to Sunday 4 October, aim to promote inclusion in all its forms, and provides a great chance to share inspiring practices and ideas.

This year’s theme is ‘Each one, reach one’ – a message focusing on the opportunities we have to connect with other people.  

Due to the ongoing coronavirus (covid-19) pandemic, all our events will be online this year, with various training sessions and panel discussions taking place during the course of the week.
