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 acknowledge the Wurundjeri people and other peoples of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the land on which our work in the community takes place. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
