What we do

Shabang Inclusive Learning is a child and young person-centred organisation where the needs of participants with additional needs are paramount to our provision. A place, both real and virtual, where participants feel valued, included and supported. A place of empathy, understanding and love where participants can explore and develop their potential whatever their abilities. A place where participants are not disabled by the physical environment or preconceptions of ability.
