In 2019, Inclusion Scotland received funding from the Big Lottery Fund (now National Lottery Community Fund) Lived Experience Pilot fund to run a year-long pilot project on developing lived experience leadership.
Inclusion Scotland recruited 9 participants from different backgrounds to pilot a Lived Experience Leadership Programme. The participants all had lived experience of being disabled and wanted to use their lived experience in leadership roles.
The participants tested out various opportunities which included coaching, shadowing, training courses, a learning group and peer support sessions.
