Social Inclusion

Connect, collaborate & celebrate for social inclusion

Social Inclusion Week (19 – 27 November 2022) 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.
