Who We Are

Two people sit together at a table in a kitchen sharing a snack. The man is wearing a striped tshirt and has medium length straight dirty blonde hair. The woman is wearing a bright yellow sweater and has straight brown hair that is down past her shoulders. She has one hand on a pink mug and her other hand is holding up her cupcake like she is about to do a "cheers" with the man and his cupcake.

Community. Opportunity. Equality.

Established in 1960, Inclusion Northumberland is a non-profit organization that fosters meaningful inclusion and participation for people with developmental disabilities throughout Northumberland County and the surrounding area. In 1960, Inclusion Northumberland’s founding parent dreamed that her daughter would live in an inclusive community at a time when doctors recommended provincial institutions.

We believe, as Mary Cook did, that people with developmental disabilities have the right to live in and participate in their community.

Personal Outcome Measures

By using a Personal Outcome based approach we solicit what is most important to people and provide the support needed to achieve their personal goals. Our services emphasize dignity and respect, while promoting and advocating for inclusive community opportunities and equality.
