Social Inclusion Week

Council is committed to making East Gippsland a leader in promoting and developing communities that value diversity and encourage belonging and understanding.


Social Inclusion week is about encouraging communities to reconnect and be inclusive of all cultures, age groups, nationalities and the disadvantaged.


The week aims to help Australians feel valued and to give people the opportunity to participate fully in society. Its about connecting local communities, work mates, family and friends to build relationships and networks, addressing isolation and exclusion by supporting people who may be unable to help themselves.


This year, Social Inclusion Week Australia runs from Saturday 25 November – Sunday 03 December 2017. The theme is CONNECT COLLABORATE AND CELEBRATE! We have put together a calendar of FREE events to celebrate and encourage people of all ages to join together and engage with the objectives of the week by attending a community activity.


Calendars are available from Council Service Centres and Libraries
