Youth Social Inclusion Project

HBCF and the University of Melbourne (UoM) Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences (FMDHS) are working in partnership to research and help improve the inclusion of all children and young adults in services, activities and opportunities in the western suburbs.

At the end of their four-month placement in the western suburbs, six UoM Masters of Social Work students presented a Project Report for Phase 1 of the project to the HBCF Committee.  The recommendations in the report will form the basis for Phase 2 of the project in 2017.
