Social inclusion

Social inclusion is the process of ensuring everyone can access the services they need to participate fully in society. Click here to read more about social inclusion and how we're working to achieve it.

Examples of social inclusion projects:

Social prescribing

Social prescribing helps people improve their health and wellbeing by connecting them with a range of groups, activities and services. Our social prescribing team has created a directory of local support services and community groups.

We are running an online awareness event, in partnership with The Beacon Counselling Trust, to highlight the impact of gambling. The event will be held on November 17, from 10am to 12 noon via Zoom. Register for the event here.

Well Whitehaven

Well Whitehaven is a community regeneration project. It brings together partners from different sectors with children and communities to help them realise their ambitions and create a positive impact for future generations. Click here to find out more about Well Whitehaven.
