Social Inclusion Program

The Social Inclusion Program provides targeted, individual support on a short-term basis for individuals that may need extra support to get out and meet others; to find social activities or interest groups in their local community; or to increase their confidence to volunteer or re-enter the workforce. The program aims to assist Casey residents to feel included, connected and valued in their community, and will build on people’s existing skills, strengths, interests and networks.

The Social Inclusion worker will help an individual to identify a goal and work out a plan to support them to meet these objectives.  The worker can provide support to:

  • (re) connect with family and friends
  • engage in social activities
  • stay fit and healthy
  • join a club or group
  • find and participate in training or education options
  • find volunteering opportunities
