Red Cross is committed to an inclusive society where all people are valued, their differences are respected and their basic needs are met. Red Cross' Social Inclusion Programs work to overcome social exclusion for vulnerable and socially isolated people by providing bridges back into the community.
Through our social inclusion activities and programs, we advocate for people on the margins of Australian society facing social disadvantage.
Our social inclusion programs focus on four key areas:
People who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless
Mental health »
People with mental health issues or who are at risk of developing mental health issues
Offenders and their families »
Justice and the impacts of imprisonment
Vulnerable older people »
Socially isolated and vulnerable older people
