Practising Social Inclusion presents what we know about what works, and why, in promoting social inclusion and practising in a socially inclusive way.
Contributing to the growing debates on social inclusion, this book moves beyond discussion of who it is that is socially excluded and the processes of exclusion. It draws on research and reflective practice to answer the vital question of how to actually work towards inclusion and includes five sections looking at different arenas for practice: policy; programme design; service delivery; community life; and research.
Relevant to all those working to promote, or researching, human health and wellbeing, this book is especially suitable for practitioners, students and scholars in health promotion, social work, social policy, public health, disability studies, occupational therapy and nursing.

"Offers a wide-ranging view of social inclusion practice, providing insights into a number of key issues and discussions". - Lee Gregory, SOCIAL POLICY & ADMINISTRATION, University of Birmingham, UK
'The book has a key emphasis on understanding the concept of social inclusion and, more importantly, practising it, which is reflected in the title. The eminent editors have extensive expertise in the areas of social inclusion, population health and epidemiology, social policy, social work, and research. This publication is a vital resource in the growing body of critical literature, making a distinctive contribution to thinking about and practising social inclusion, particularly in the current absence of a national approach in this area of social policy.'- Mike Dee, Queensland University of Technology Australian Social Work
