During 2001 the National Development Team has been running the ‘Able Volunteers’ programme. This is a year‐long research programme that has been investigating inclusive volunteering opportunities for people with mental health problems or learning difficulties. Peter Bates, who has been leading the programme, gives a summary of the project's findings and also explores the meaning of another word that is currently fashionable but rarely explained with any precision ‐ the word ‘inclusive’.
