The stories told in Moving from the Edge show that given the opportunity, people who were previously 'outsiders' can find places in society that are satisfying to them and productive from the community's viewpoint. This study personalises the policies and discussions about social inclusion. It forcefully reminds us that behind each statistic about social exclusion lies a person - a unique and valuable human being with hopes and aspirations; a person often facing daunting barriers to their full flourishing as human beings and citizens.
