21 Nov Social Inclusion Week 20-27th November – Get Involved
Social Inclusion: full and equal participation in all aspects of life
Social Inclusion is about creating a society where everyone experiences full and equal participation in all aspects of life. South Dublin County Council remains committed to sustaining and enhancing efforts to improve the quality of life of all residents in the County.
What is Social Inclusion ?
Social Inclusion is “the process which ensures that those at risk of poverty and
social exclusion gain the opportunities and resources necessary to participate fully in economic, social and cultural life and enjoy a
standard of living and well being that is considered normal in the society in which they live”.
The purpose of South Dublin County Social Inclusion Week is to highlight and promote the positive work that South Dublin County Council is involved in to reduce social exclusion and poverty. It is a programme of events organised by the Social Inclusion Unit, Community Services Department to highlight the diversity and creativity of people in South Dublin County. The Unit reaches out into all sections of the community, connecting many people and groups who are normally isolated and on the margins. It is an opportunity for people to learn new skills, share ideas and participate in their community
