About Inclusion Group

Providing employment opportunities to People with Disabilities since 2014.

Production with social value

Back in 2014, at the initial phase, the Inclusion Factory employed 12 individuals with intellectual disability who performed assembly work for the automotive and electrical appliances industries. As of 2021, Inclusion Factory has been employing 40 full-time employees with intellectual or mental disability.

Making inclusion work

As the market demand for hiring people with disabilities has grown, combined with our accumulated experience in this field, we have established the “Inclusion Advisory” service, to support companies to assess, train & hire People with Disabilities.

Education for change

The biggest barrier for promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities is not accessibility, but rather the attitudes of the society toward those with disabilities. In order to tackle this immense barrier, we have established the “Social Inclusion Academy” to change the societal perception to see capabilities instead of disabilities, opportunities instead of threat through our Disability Equality Awareness Seminars, we influence people’s attitudes and attitudes towards people with disabilities; through our Transition Program, we empower graduates with intellectual disabilities to smoothly and successfully enter the workplace; through the Train the Trainer Program, we provide companies with an internal coach that will further support the training and development of people with disabilities in their organization.

The Inclusion Group is a social enterprise dedicated to the employment of People with Intellectual Disabilities. Founded in 2014 in Taicang, Jiangsu Province, it is one of China’s leading employment solutions providers for People with Intellectual Disabilities and the recruiting enterprises.

“I never thought my son could have a job. Since he started working at the inclusion factory, he has colleagues, friends and he participates in many activities, he has been learning a lot and developing his cognitive and social skills. He has changed so much in the last few weeks. He very rarely smiled before, or was smiling because someone instructed him to do so.”
