Integrated Health Promotion Partnership for Social Inclusion

The Inner East PCP is the backbone organisation leading partners to effect change and to facilitate collaboration with local and state government and other community services. Participating organisations are encouraged to identify barriers to social inclusion, and specific groups who are socially excluded, and target actions at both reducing barriers and increasing inclusion of target populations.

Integrated Health Promotion Plan 2017-21

Community Health Services, Women’s Health and the Primary Care Partnership (PCP) in the Inner East catchment of Melbourne (Access Health & Community, Carrington Health, and Link Health & Community and Women’s Health East, supported by the Inner East PCP) have chosen ‘social inclusion’ as a core shared priority in their integrated health promotion plan for 2017-2021, specifically with a focus on Social Housing Estate communities in the Inner East. Social housing is short and long-term rental housing that is owned and run by the Government or not-for-profit agencies. The Inner East PCP is the backbone organization leading the community and women’s health partners to effect change and to facilitate collaboration with local and state government and other community services.

Under the 2019-2020 Integrated health promotion action plan for social inclusion there are six objectives:

  1. Prevent social exclusion associated with place-based disadvantage
  2. Increase volunteering rates
  3. Increase community-based programs and leadership development
  4. Enhance capacity building for program design, implementation and evaluation
  5. Contribute to the evidence base
  6. Strengthen partnership
