Social inclusion in the family support sector /

by Caruana, Catherine | Australian Institute of Family Studies. Australian Family elationships Clearinghouse | McDonald, Myfanwy.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Australian Family Relationships Clearinghouse. Briefing 19.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 9-10Summary: The increased interest in social inclusion and its application to policy and practice in Australia and internationally reflects a shift to a more nuanced view of the causes and effects of disadvantage. A policy emphasis in Australia on social inclusion is based on a recognition that, despite an extended period of economic growth, many families and individuals are still marginalised and excluded from mainstream opportunities in areas such as employment and housing. While principles that promote respect, participation and equity have long formed the philosophical basis of social services, there is a growing trend to systemise these principles via social inclusion frameworks and strategies. This briefing paper summarises some of the literature and research on social inclusion and considers the relevance of the concept and its application to family support services. Social inclusion frameworks, principles and resources are used to consider how family support services can incorporate the concept of social inclusion into the current and future planning and delivery of services. Barriers and challenges to doing so are also discussed.Availability: (1)
