Free Access and Inclusivity Tool

The My Involvement Profile is an easy format for recording access needs in one place. It can also be used to record involvement interests and experience.

It was designed by Disabled people and based on our research where deaf and Disabled people told us that they don’t always record their support needs, and don’t always have their access needs met – Tickboxes and Tokenism? Service User Involvement Report 2022 – Shaping Our Lives

For local VCSOs striving to meet access needs but also struggling with lack of funding and increased demand, the My Involvement Profile could help them to collate access needs in one simple way.

The Profile can also be used by people who want to share their lived experience to help make local and national services better, something many of your members will be actively involved in or campaigning for.

This project is lottery funded and we need to record numbers of people requesting the My Involvement Profile, so we are kindly asking organisations not to disseminate it, but rather to ask people to contact us directly for their free copy and help notes – we can be contacted on

We have over two decades of experience working for inclusive involvement – visit our website for many free resources and blogs: Home – Shaping Our Lives
