Social Inclusion Framework

Social inclusion underpins equitable health and wellbeing outcomes. The social, economic and political costs of exclusion are borne by individuals and society.

In 2020 the IEPCP developed a Social Inclusion Framework which guides actions to promote social inclusion and an inclusive society. It includes:

  • a definition of social inclusion;
  • an outline of the guiding principles and values informing the work;
  • a model explaining the factors that make a society inclusive;
  • an explanation of how social inclusion relates to other key concepts such as social connectedness;
  • and case studies that demonstrate social inclusion in action.

We launched the framework in December 2020. Watch all or parts of the recording:
