The NI Disability Network Team led by Colin Millar has produced a series of Disability Leaflets for youth leaders, on a range of 25 different disabilities that can affect young people, to enable youth leaders to fully include children of all abilities in youth activities. Copies of the leaflets are available from NIHQ@boys-brigade.org.uk at Newport or they may be downloaded from the list below.
A Disability App is also available on Apple and Android to give leaders quick access to the Disability information.
Please contact NIHQ if you require any further assistance and support from the BBNI Disability Network Team.
