Social Inclusion

In order to shift complex health and social issues we need to work in collaboration and share knowledge, expertise and resources.  Acknowledging this, DHHS have advised that health promotion funded agencies and local government need to align effort by identifying regional priorities where possible.

We are working in collaboration with HealthWest and prevention partners and other relevant stakeholders to increase organisational and system readiness to adopt social inclusion as a shared prevention priority across the west and inner north catchment.

This piece of work brings together agencies across nine local government areas to collectively develop an understanding of social inclusion practice as well as identifying monitoring and evaluation measures to support ongoing implementation on collaborative actions.

The project considers the context of work underway at the state and local government levels and endeavors to align process and indicators for measuring progress where possible.


Objectives of this work include:

  • Developing and agree upon a shared definition of social inclusion and why it is important for social and emotional health.
  • Narrow the scope of work by identifying those activities most common to partner agencies.
  • Agree upon shared indicators for identified activity
  • Commence the measurement of progress using agreed indicators
  • Evaluation and monitoring including the use of data and case studies as examples of collaborative practice/action.


INW PCP Social Inclusion Measurement Project

In 2018, INW PCP and HealthWest Partnership partners identified monitoring and evaluation of social inclusion projects as a key priority. In response, INW PCP commissioned Trezona Consulting Group to undertake the Social Inclusion Measurement Project. This used a co-design approach to develop a set of core indicators and measures for monitoring and evaluating social inclusion practice by INW PCP and HealthWest partner agencies. The final report for this project is now available.  Full Report    Summary Report
