Social inclusion has been talked about in many different ways around the world. The concept has been used in a variety of settings to support a range of population groups. This website is primarily based on the concept of social inclusion as it was developed by the AVIK project, an European partnership that works to support the creation and sustainability of inclusive communities.
In a socially inclusive community, residents have opportunities to participate fully in the social, economic and cultural life of their community. Social inclusion policies facilitate access to employment, education, health, housing and democratic processes. These socially inclusive policies create health and wellbeing for individuals by creating a supportive communityDamian Ferrie, 2008
A socially inclusive society is defined as one where all people feel valued, their differences are respected, and their basic needs are met so they can live in dignityDavid Cappo, 2002
Inclusion is messy. It is about constant vigilance, constant negotiation, learning to deal with diversity, questioning things we take for granted… It is not about bringing outsiders into the existing mainstream culture—it is about creating a new and negotiated culture together.Uzma Shakir, 2004
