Social Inclusion Week aims to help all Australians feel included and valued, giving everyone the opportunity to participate fully in society. It aims to connect local communities, workmates, family and friends, to build and strengthen relationships or networks and address isolation and exclusion of those who may be marginalised.

The Social Inclusion Week team would like to acknowledge the thousands of individuals and hundreds of schools, communities, businesses, government and welfare organisations who have participated in this important initiative and have connected, collaborated and celebrated diversity and inclusion right across Australia.

Take a moment to check out our website at www.socialinclusionweek.com.au and to connect with those people in your lives who bring meaning and support to you and to those around you!

To celebrate the 10th annual Social Inclusion Week, why not come to our special and spectacular Joyful! Joyful! concert this Saturday at 3pm in Deakin Edge, Fed Square?
