Social Inclusion Week
22- 30 November, 2014

A huge thank you to everyone who hosted and took part in events across the country last week. SIW 2014 exceeded our expectations with well over 500 organisations, community groups and individuals taking part in a huge range of events and activities. You can see from the photos just how much fun was had collaborating, connecting and celebrating. This is a small selection from all the photos posted on our Social Media pages.


We're looking foward to seeing more of your photos as they come through over the next week or two. Remember... to be part of our Photo Competition, photos need to be either posted on Social Media, Tweeted using #SIW14photo or emailed to us at by Friday 12 November. (Winner of the $50 Coles Voucher will be contacted on Monday 15 November)


It's great that you are letting us know through your photos and posts how successful your events were. Sharing your photos and hearing how wonderful your events were is inspiring for us all and no doubt will give many people ideas for their own events next year.


We'd love to continue to hear about your events... keep posting and checking our Facebook page!
