What we do
We campaign for inclusive education
ALLFIE’s vision is ‘a world where inclusive education is a right not a struggle’
We campaign for the right of all Disabled pupils and students to be fully included in mainstream education, training and apprenticeships with all necessary supports. We also create the resources that people and organisations need to advocate for inclusive education, training and apprenticeships and to develop good inclusive education practice.
ALLFIE believes that Disabled and non-disabled pupils and students learning together creates opportunities to build relationships and create a diverse and inclusive society that welcomes everyone.
ALLFIE uses the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities as our framework for change. This states that a fully inclusive education system requires the ending of segregated special schools, units, hubs and classrooms.
ALLFIE’s main focus is on the English education system and law, but we also work with partner campaigning organisations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as well as in Europe.
Our aims as an organisation are:
- To create the resources to promote a wider understanding of the benefits of inclusive education for all
- To lead the lobby for change in legislation and policy to ensure inclusive education as a right for all
- To build the capacity of the inclusive education movement to become a more effective voice of influence
