Social Inclusion Week aims to help all Australians feel included and valued, giving everyone the opportunity to participate fully in society.
One of the simplest things we can do to build caring and inclusive communities is to reach out to those around us. Being included in society is paramount to good mental health and wellbeing.
Volunteering plays an important role in facilitating social participation and inclusion. Everyone, regardless of their background, can contribute knowledge, skills, and life experience to support communities and make a difference.
Volunteering creates new possibilities that empower people to connect, where we are all united for the greater good.
