Connect, collaborate & celebrate for social inclusion
Social Inclusion Week (18 – 26 November 2023) aims to help all Australians feel included and valued, giving everyone the opportunity to participate fully in society.
Social inclusion is defined as the process of improving the terms of participation in society, particularly for people who are disadvantaged, through enhancing opportunities, access to resources, voice and respect for rights.
The Inclusive Australia Social Inclusion Index (2022-21 Report) indicated that people engage with social inclusion in a variety of ways and although prejudicial attitudes against some groups of people are lower on average, they are still present and problematic.
Being socially inclusive encompasses encouraging communities to reconnect across cultures, age groups, nationalities and abilities.
Social inclusion across ACH Group communities
At ACH Group, we value connected communities and social connections. It is more important now than ever to encourage customers, staff and the community to connect with one another.
Discover & Explore experiences
ACH Group offers social experiences for people to connect with friends or meet new ones while explore an exciting destination or experience in South Australia.
Our offering includes day tours, getaways, and experiences in categories across art and culture, sport and recreation, entertainment and technology. See all Discover & Explore experiences.
Supporting your best life
As we get older and our circumstances change, additional support and companionship offer many benefits. Whether it’s help with tasks around the home or having someone who can accompany you to social outings or appointments, a support worker can help maintain your independence and social engagement.
Your best self starts with your best health
Whether it’s being able to enjoy activities that you love or trying new ones, recovering from a setback, or managing an ongoing condition, ACH Group health and wellbeing services combine exercise and education to promote independent living and positive health outcomes.
Retirement living communities
The opportunities for social inclusion in ACH Group retirement living community are ever present, with regular coffee catch ups, information sessions and activities at community hubs. Learn more about retirement living at ACH Group.
Healthy ageing approach
We believe that older people should continue to live full and active lives.
Social inclusion in every ACH Group residential care home is encouraged through a wide range of activities and programs including social events and outings, arts and cultural activities, men’s groups and strong community links. Learn more about healthy ageing approach.
Volunteering is a great way to stay in touch with your community and contribute your knowledge, skills, and life experience to support others and make a difference to someone’s life. Learn more about volunteering at ACH Group.
