|Abstract: ||This research aimed at examining inclusive community recreation and best practices
across five English speaking countries. A literature review was conducted which
covered the topic from a range of academic and professional perspectives. The study
further covered websites hosted by a number of organisations which provide services
for people with disabilities and have a particular focus on recreation and leisure.

Australia and New Zealand.

in order to find programmes which utilise principles of inclusion for people with
The findings from the literature review have been presented under four broad
categories, theoretical findings, best practice, those relevant to service providers, and
those pertaining to service users.
The review of websites is discussed briefly prior to suggestions for further research.

many organisations which cater for the needs of people with disabilities.|
