Book Description

Sustaining Social Inclusion is the third book in a series on social exclusion and social inclusion. It explores what different understandings of sustainability mean in respect of social inclusion in the variety of fields that deal with human health and well-being. The book is global in its scope, with chapters relating to socially inclusive health and social welfare practice internationally.

This book is divided into seven parts:

  • Introduction;
  • Sustainable policies for promoting social inclusion;
  • Sustaining programmes which support social inclusion;
  • Sustaining organisations which promote social inclusion;
  • Sustainable social inclusion outcomes;
  • Sustainable social development; and
  • Conclusions.

It examines how social inclusion can be sustained in the long-term when funding tends to be time-limited.

This research-based book is relevant to a wide range of different readerships globally. It addresses issues of concern for those engaged in debates about the provision of health, social welfare, and other public services. Sustaining Social Inclusion will be of interest to academics, policy makers, and practitioners in a wide range of fields, including public health, health promotion, health sciences, history, medicine, philosophy, disability studies, social work, social policy, sociology, and urban planning.
